Erectile dysfunction

erectile dysfunction


Levitra, like Viagra and Cialis is a prescription-only medicine used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. ED is the regular (not occasional) inability to produce and then sustain an erection for the enjoyment of sexual activity, including sexual intercourse. This drug (and others like it) allows the penis, with physical stimulation, to grow large and firm and for that tumescence to be sustained during sexual activity. However the drug is not suitable for certain men who are taking other medications or who have certain other medical conditions.

This article touches on some of the more common reasons not to be prescribed the drug. However for the full list and for a proper consultation you will need to make an appointment with your General Practitioner. If that is inconvenient, then you can engage in an online consultation with a qualified medical practitioner at some pharmacy sites. They will issue with a prescription and sell you this drug if you satisfactorily complete the consultation.

This drug can cause your blood pressure to drop suddenly to an unsafe level if it is taken with certain other medicines. With a sudden drop in blood pressure, you could get dizzy, faint, or have a heart attack or stroke. Consequently it must not be taken in combination with any medications called “nitrates” (often used to treat angina), or if you use recreational drugs called “poppers” like amyl nitrate and butyl nitrate. The drug should not be used in conjunction with other ED treatments, or with any drugs that can lower blood pressure such as those known as alpha-blockers.

Alpha-blockers are sometimes prescribed for prostate problems or high blood pressure. It is also not suitable for men with serious heart conditions. If you have been told by your doctor that you are not fit enoughto engage in Sexual activity then why would you want to take this drug? You might put a strain on your heart, especially if your heart is already weak from a previous heart attack or from chronic heart disease.

It is not suitable if you have liver or kidney problems, retinitis pigmentosa (a rare genetic eye disease), stomach ulcers, a deformed penis shape or Peyronie’s disease, have had an erection that lasted more than 4 hours, or have blood cell problems such as sickle cell anaemia, multiple myeloma, or leukaemia. This list is not exhaustive, which is why the drug is prescription-only. You should also be aware that even if a doctor has deemed it safe for you to take the drug, you may experience some side effects including headaches, dry mouth, facial flushing, upset stomach and nasal congestion. It is unlikely that you will experience all of these, and if you do experience one or more, the effect is likely to be mild and tolerable.

If not, then stop taking Levitra and seek advice from a medical professional on possible alternatives.
