What is Levitra Orodispersible?

Levitra is a treatment for erectile dysfunction in men. It contains a type of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor called vardenafil, which works in combination with sexual stimulation by increasing blood flow to the penis. This can help a man to successfully achieve and maintain an erection long enough for sexual activity to take place. Levitra Orodispersible is a soluble form of 10mg Levitra, it can be useful if you have difficulty swallowing tablets. 

How effective is Levitra?

When used correctly, Levitra is effective in 60-70% of patients. If Levitra is not working for you, speak to your doctor about similar alternatives available. 

How long does Levitra take to work?

Levitra can start working within 25 minutes of taking the tablet. You should take the tablet 25 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.

How long does Levitra last?

Levitra can stay in the bloodstream for up to 8 hours and can remain effective for 4 to 5 hours. If a man becomes sexually aroused during this time, Levitra can help to maintain an erection.

Levitra and psychological ED

Erectile dysfunction often has a psychological cause, such as anxiety or depression, in which case counselling may be the most effective treatment. While Levitra is often recommended for treatment during this process, it is important not to allow it to mask the problem.

Treatment Options

Are Levitra and Viagra the same?

Levitra and Viagra work in similar ways, but are not the same medication. Levitra contains vardenafil and is generally longer lasting than viagra, which contains sildenafil.

Levitra vs other ED medications

Different ED medications are better suited to different people, and your doctor will be able to help you find the one that is right for you. Like Levitra, Cialis (Tadalafil) and Viagra (Sildenafil) are PDE-5 inhibitors that work by increasing blood flow to the penis in the event of sexual stimulation. Unlike Levitra and Viagra, which can be effective for up to 5 hours, Cialis can remain effective for up to 36 hours. Spedra (Avanafil) is a new, fast acting variant that can take as little at 15 minutes to become effective and has a similar duration of action to Viagra and Levitra.

Levitra vs Orodispersible Levitra

Orodispersible Levitra is a good option if you have difficulty swallowing capsules whole, as it is designed to dissolve in the mouth. However, it is only available as a 10 mg dose. If you feel that you need a stronger or weaker dose, you may need to switch to Levitra capsules, which are available at a dose of 5, 10 or 20 mg.

Lifestyle changes to improve erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is often caused by psychological issues, such as depression, anxiety or stress. Finding ways to reduce stress in your life can be extremely beneficial, as can maintaining a healthy lifestyle, exercising regularly, and cutting down on alcohol and smoking. Anxiety can be further exacerbated by performance issues, and can be partially relieved by being open with your partner and discussing any worries you have. You can speak to a doctor or nurse for advice on dealing with anxiety or depression.


Is Levitra a cure?

Levitra will not cure erectile dysfunction, the root cause of which is often psychological. However, it can help to relieve the stress and anxiety associated with ED.

Will Levitra give me an erection for hours?

Levitra only works in combination with sexual stimulation, increasing blood flow to the penis when man is aroused. While Levitra can be effective for up to 5 hours after administration, it does not itself stimulate arousal and so will not give you an erection for hours.

What if Levitra doesn’t work for me?

Levitra is more effective in some patients than in other. If you feel that Levitra is not working for you, speak to your doctor for advice on alternative treatments.

Can Levitra be brought over the counter?

Levitra is a prescription-only medication and cannot be purchased over the counter in the UK.

When is Levitra most effective?

Levitra is effective around 25 to 30 minutes after administration, and continues to work for up to 5 hours.

Can women take Levitra?

Levitra is not intended for use in women and there is little evidence to suggest that it has any effect on female sexual pleasure.

Does Levitra increase libido?

Levitra does not increase sex drive or stimulate sexual arousal. It works in combination with sexul stimulation to increase blood flow to the penis.

What is generic Levitra?

Generic Levitra, referred to simply as Vardenafil, became available in the UK in October 2018. It can be cheaper than the branded Levitra, but should only be purchased from a registered pharmacy such as Dr Felix. Unlicensed versions of this medication can be found online and can be dangerous.
