Levitra vs Viagra

Many different medications are available for erectile dysfunction. Several of these pills, contain different active ingredients which can have slightly different effects. If you want to know which might work best for you, you could compare their attributes and even try them out to see how they work. We’ll give you the information here to get you started, by comparing the two most common erectile dysfunction pills: Viagra and Levitra.

 

How Does Levitra Work?

Levitra last between 4-6 hours, which puts it on par with Viagra. It contains the active ingredient vardenafil, which relaxes your blood vessel muscles. This encourages blood flow in exactly the same way Viagra does. Like Viagra, you will need to take it about an hour before sexual activity this gives it time to take full effect, giving you the best results.

How Does Viagra Work?

Viagra is the drug most commonly associated with ED, since it has been available for so long and is so widely advertised. It can work in as little as an hour and can last up to six hours. Sildenafil is the active ingredient, and it can help you achieve an erection faster than normal and maintain that erection despite your ED difficulties.

Viagra is effective about 65% of the time. There are things you can do to make it more effective, such as eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise. These will ensure your blood flow is normal and that your semen is healthy, but Viagra can give you the extra boost you need to perform well sexually.

Which to Use

The period of effect is the same for both pills, but how you take them can differ. Viagra should be taken alone, on an empty stomach for best results. Levitra, however, you can take with or without meals.

Which one works best for you will depend on your experience with both of them. Some men respond to one better than the other, even though they produce basically the same results and have almost identical side effects. Those side effects are headaches, back pain, stuffy nose and redness or warmth in the face, known as facial flushing. Most people will only experience very mild side effects with these drugs, so there is little danger to you when you take them. You do need to be careful about what other medications you are taking and how these drugs can interact with them. Just let the doctor know what medications you are on so the doctor can let you know if it is safe to take one of these ED medications.

In most cases, men will need to try out both drugs themselves to see if one works better for them than the other. In many cases, there is a slight performance difference with one over the other, but that always depends on the man taking them.
