- How does Levitra work?
Levitra belongs to a group of medications that are known as ‘PDE-5 inhibitors’. They work by relaxing the blood vessels in your penis, which increases blood flow to the area and helps you get an erection. Levitra will not help you get an erection if you are not aroused.
The effectiveness of Levitra is impacted by several factors, including:
- the cause and severity of your ED
- how aroused you are
- your general health
- whether you smoke (smoking can restrict blood flow)
- whether you have drunk alcohol or taken drugs
- whether you have eaten recently (Levitra works better on an empty stomach)
- specifically whether you have eaten grapefruit (which impacts the body’s ability to digest Levitra)
- There are 3 doses of Levitra: 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg. Higher doses of Levitra have a stronger effect, but may also increase the chances of the medication causing unwanted side effects.
- Levitra 10mg
This is the standard dose of Levitra, and it’s the recommended starting dose if you haven’t tried it before. Levitra 10mg works for most men, and has a lower risk of side effects than 20mg.
- Levitra 20mg
- Levitra 20mg may be recommended if you’ve tried Levitra 10mg before, but didn’t see the results you wanted and you didn’t get serious side effects. 20mg is a stronger dose, so it can work for you when 10mg hasn’t, but it comes with a slightly higher risk of side effects.
- Levitra 5mg
- Levitra 5mg is only recommended if you tried a higher dosage and found you got side effects, or if you’re taking medication that makes Levitra treatment more risky. We do not offer this dose to buy online.
Levitra is an effective treatment, but it doesn’t work for everyone:
- It works for 54% to 74% of people who try it
- Levitra has a rating of 8 out of 10 for erectile dysfunction treatment according to user reviews on drugs.com
- On average, patients who used Superdrug Online Doctor to order Levitra rate it 4.4 out of 5 stars on TrustPilot.
- Not sure if Levitra is right for you?
There are a number of different treatments for erectile dysfunction, so if you're not sure that Levitra is right for you then there are other options available. The most popular medications for treating erectile dysfunction are Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. Each of these medications work slightly differently,
If you’re not sure which to choose, remember that all of these medications are effective and safe as long as a doctor approves treatment for you. We do not recommend one over the other.
If you need help choosing:
- Higher dosage numbers does not mean the medication is stronger overall
- Levitra and Viagra are about as effective as each other, and work in similar ways
- If you want a longer-lasting medication, you might want to choose Cialis or Cialis Daily
- If you don’t want to have to plan to take your medication before sex, you might want to choose Cialis Daily

Levitra can cause some side effects and it may react with other medication you’re taking. It’s also not safe for everyone to take, so you need to let the doctor know about any health conditions you have. For full safety information, please read the patient information leaflet that comes with your medication. Less than 2% of people who use Levitra will get side effects. Levitra should be safe as long as a doctor has approved treatment. Still, some people can get side effects after taking this medication.
The most common side effects of Levitra are:
- blocked/runny nose
Levitra should be taken at between 30-60 minutes before you want to have sex for the best results. This gives the medication time to reach its full effect and help you to get and maintain your erection. Try not to take Levitra just after a meal, especially a meal that is high in fat, as it can slow down the time it takes Levitra to start working. The effects can last for 4-5 hours.Levitra pills are round orange tablets, with an imprint on one side that shows what dose they are. For example, Levitra 20mg would have “20” imprinted onto the pill. On the other side there will be an imprint of “BAYER”, the manufacturer, in a cross pattern. There are several alternatives to Levitra, such as Viagra, Cialis and Spedra, which are prescription medications that work in similar ways. Devices such as penis pumps can also help to treat erectile dysfunction, and even can be used at the same time as medications for a better effect. Making changes to your lifestyle, such as exercising regularly or stopping smoking can also help improve your erectile dysfunction, as can addressing causes such as anxiety.
Levitra and Viagra both help with erectile dysfunction in a similar way, but contain different active ingredients and are available in different dosages. She same way, you should not take both at the same time. If you find it difficult to keep an erection, Levitra can help you to get and maintain an erection, so you can stay harder for longer. However, if you are orgasming too quickly, then Levitra won’t help you last longer as it does not delay orgasm. If you are orgasming too quickly, you may want to try premature ejaculation treatment or techniques. While people sometimes use alcohol to try and overcome sexual anxiety, it can actually make it more difficult to get an erection. Because of this, drinking alcohol can make it harder for Levitra to work, and can also make the side effects of Levitra worse. Can you get Levitra over the counter?No, you can’t buy Levitra over the counter. Levitra is a prescription only medication, which means that a doctor needs to assess you to make sure that it is safe and appropriate for you to take it. This is because Levitra could be unsuitable if you have certain health conditions, or could interact with medications that you are taking.
Women should not take Levitra, as it is only licensed for use by men in the UK. Some websites advertise products like “female Levitra” or “female Viagra” as medications to improve a woman’s sex drive, but these are not approved treatments and there is no evidence that these products actually work. No, you should never take Levitra with another erectile dysfunction medication. Erectile dysfunction medications all work in the same way, so taking them together could cause serious side effects. You should only take one Levitra tablet per day, even if it’s a 2.5mg tablet (the lowest dose available). If you take more Levitra that your doctor has prescribed, then it may be unsafe as you have not been assessed for that dosage. In addition, the drug stays in your system for many hours, so taking more than one dose in a day might be dangerous. Yes, it is safe to buy Levitra online from trusted and regulated sellers like Superdrug Online Doctor.
