Erectile Dysfunction Home > Levitra and Alcohol
Although combining Levitra and alcohol is not expected to cause any problems, it is still a good idea to be aware of potential problems that could occur when consuming large amounts of alcohol. Theoretically, consuming alcohol while taking Levitra may cause the blood vessels to dilate, potentially causing dizziness, a rapid heart rate, and low blood pressure.
Is It Safe to Combine Alcohol and Levitra?Many men may wonder if it is okay to combine Levitra® (vardenafil HCL) and alcohol. Although there is a theoretical risk that medications like Levitra could interact with alcohol, studies have not shown this to be an actual problem with Levitra.
Studies on Levitra and AlcoholBoth alcohol and Levitra can have similar effects on blood vessels, causing them to dilate (open wider). This could cause problems such as:
- A rapid heart rate (tachycardia)
- Low blood pressure.
However, studies did not show such problems when Levitra was combined with enough alcohol to equal a little less than four ounces of 80-proof vodka. Although studies indicate that combining the two is unlikely to cause problems, it is a good idea to be aware of potential problems, especially when consuming large amounts of alcohol.
