Effects of Levitra

The effects of Levitra have been studied in a wide variety of men with erectile dysfunction (ED), including those with diabetes and those who had undergone radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. In all of the studies, Levitra has been effective at helping men with erectile dysfunction engage in sexual activity. Erections lasted long enough for successful intercourse in up to 75 percent of men taking Levitra 10 mg.

An Overview of the Effects of Levitra

Levitra® (vardenafil HCL) is a prescription medication used to treat erectile dysfunction, which is also known as impotence or ED. Levitra has been studied extensively in thousands of men with erectile dysfunction. In all studies, Levitra improved the ability of men with erectile dysfunction to engage in sexual activity.
 

Specific Effects of Levitra

To gain knowledge about the effects of Levitra, researchers asked men a series of questions about the ability to achieve erections and the ability to maintain an erection after penetration during each sexual intercourse attempt. They were also asked questions about orgasms, desire, satisfaction with intercourse, and overall sexual satisfaction. Improvements in erections were related somewhat to the Levitra dosage. Men reported an improvement in erection enough to allow vaginal penetration up to 65 percent of the time with Levitra 5 mg, up to 75 percent of the time with Levitra 10 mg, and up to 80 percent of time with Levitra 20 mg. Depending on the dosage, up to 65 percent of the time, erections lasted long enough for successful intercourse.
 

Effects of Levitra in People With Diabetes

Research studies have also looked at the effectiveness of Levitra in people with diabetes. These studies investigated the ability to achieve erections and the ability to maintain an erection after penetration. People took either Levitra 10 mg or Levitra 20 mg. As in other studies, significant improvements were seen in erections and successful intercourse attempts. For men with diabetes taking Levitra 10 mg, 61 percent had a satisfactory erection that allowed vaginal penetration, and 49 percent had an erection that lasted long enough for successful intercourse. In those taking Levitra 20 mg, 64 percent had a satisfactory erection that allowed vaginal penetration, and 54 percent had an erection that lasted long enough for successful intercourse.
