Side Effects

(The side effects listed below are NOT a complete list of possible side effects you may experience with Levitra. Your doctor can provide you with a comprehensive list of these side effects.)
As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Levitra. However, not everyone who takes it will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it well. When side effects do occur, they are usually minor, meaning they require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
The most common side effects of Levitra include:
  • Headache -- 15 percent of people (see Headaches From Levitra)
  • Facial flushing -- 11 percent of people
  • Indigestion or an upset stomach (known as dyspepsia) -- 4 percent of people
  • Stuffy or runny nose (rhinitis) -- 9 percent of people
  • Flu-like symptoms -- 3 percent of people
  • Nausea -- 2 percent of people
  • Dizziness -- 2 percent of people
  • Back pain -- 2 percent of people.
If you have cardiovascular disease or significant heart disease risk factors, you have an increased risk of serious problems with the heart, brain, and blood vessels during treatment with Levitra. This can lead to dangerous side effects such as heart attack, stroke, or sudden death.
Also, Levitra has been linked to rare cases of a condition called non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). This condition can lead to sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes. If you experience any loss of vision, contact your healthcare provider immediately (see Levitra and Blindness).
