Is Generic Levitra Safe?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition that affects a man's ability to consistently maintain an erection. Fortunately, ED can be treated safely with Levitra® (vardenafil HCl). At this time, a generic version is not available in the United States because a patent prevents this.
 
This patent is expected to expire within the next several years. Provided there are no outstanding lawsuits or legal settlements, a generic version of Levitra would likely start being produced.
 
A search on the Internet for "generic Levitra" may show several companies selling it; however, the safety of these products is questionable. Without approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there is no way to know if these medications are effective, up to U.S. quality standards, or if they even contain actual Levitra.
 
The best thing to do is continue treatment with brand-name Levitra as your healthcare provider recommends. He or she can advise you as soon as a generic version is available. That will ensure a safe, effective treatment process.
