Some considerations for people taking Staxyn include the following:
- Staxyn comes in an orally disintegrating tablet that dissolves on the tongue.
- Staxyn tablets come in individual blisterpacks. The tablet should be placed on the tongue immediately after taking it out of its blisterpack.
- Do not crush, chew, or cut the tablets; make sure to let them dissolve on your tongue whole.
- Do not take Staxyn with liquid. These tablets will dissolve without water or other liquid.
- Staxyn orally disintegrating tablets are not interchangeable with Levitra® (vardenafil) tablets. Staxyn 10-mg tablets produce higher levels of vardenafil in the body than Levitra 10-mg tablets.
- Staxyn can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
- Staxyn should be taken about one hour (60 minutes) before sexual activity, but no more than once a day.
- Sexual stimulation is needed for Staxyn to work.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage of Staxyn, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
