Levitra (vardenafil hydrochloride) is an erectile dysfunction agent that works by blocking a certain enzyme (phosphodiesterase-PDE5) used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence). Common side effects of Levitra include:

  • headache,
  • flushing (warmth or redness in your face, neck, or chest),
  • runny or stuffy nose,
  • stomach upset,
  • heartburn,
  • dizziness,
  • back pain, or
  • nausea.

In the rare event you have a painful or prolonged erection lasting 4 or more hours, stop using Levitra and get medical help right away, or permanent problems could occur. Tell your doctor if you have serious side effects of Levitra including sudden vision loss; ringing in your ears, or sudden hearing loss; chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, general ill feeling; irregular heartbeat; swelling in your hands, ankles, or feet; shortness of breath; vision changes; lightheadedness, fainting; or seizures (convulsions).

The recommended starting dose of Levitra is 10 mg, taken orally, as needed, approximately 60 minutes before sexual activity. The dose may be increased to a maximum 20 mg or decreased to 5 mg based on efficacy and side effects. The maximum recommended dosing frequency is once per day. Levitra may interact with nitrate drugs for chest pain or heart problems, other medications for erectile dysfunction, conivaptan, diclofenac, imatinib, isoniazid, antidepressants, antibiotics, antifungals, drugs to treat high blood pressure or a prostate disorder, heart or blood pressure medications, heart rhythm medicine, or HIV/AIDS medicine. Tell your doctor all medications you use. This medication is not usually used in women. Therefore, it is unlikely to be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
