Generic Levitra 20 mg (Vardenafil pills) is used when treating male ED problems. Works well even after drinking moderate amounts of alcohol. May work faster, on a full stomach, and for men for whom Viagra failed.
Take Levitra at least 30 minutes to an hour prior to sex with a glass of water. Vardenafil works better in hard-to-treat cases, such as men whose impotence is caused by diabetes. Doctors are advised to avoid eating grapefruit and drinking grapefruit juice, as they might alter how the drugs work.
ALTERNATIVES TO VARDENAFIL
For 95% of men suffering from erectile dysfunction the primary cause may be related to psychological issues (not physical ones). In these cases, generic Levitra can prove to be a very effective form of treatment.
A generic drug is a drug that is not marketed under a specific brand name. Simply put, this means that a generic medication is identical to the branded original in everything (the same active ingredients, applications and formulation) but brand name.
Vardenafil Brand Names: Levitra, Zhewitra, Vilitra, Filitra, Lovevitra, Snovitra, Joyvitra, Viprofil. All these brands are alternatives to Vardenafil and generic Levitra 20 mg trade names.
WHAT IS GENERIC LEVITRA 20 MG?
Levitra was introduced a few years after Viagra, so it does not share its predecessor’s fame to the same degree. Like Viagra, generic Levitra 20 mg is used to treat erectile dysfunction.
Interestingly, Levitra stole over 50% of Viagra’s market within a short time of it having been released. The ingredient that makes Levitra such a powerful medication is known as Vardenafil and ‘Levitra’ is merely a trade name.
Any medication that has been manufactured to include Vardenafil as its primary active ingredient is therefore exactly the same thing as Levitra, even though it does not carry the trade-name. Generic Levitra 20 mg contains the same ingredients as Levitra.
HAS A GENERIC VERSION OF LEVITRA BEEN APPROVED?
Protecting trademarks is not the FDA’s function. They look at the ingredients and manufacturing process behind medications. Vardenafil has been approved as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, so therefore any legitimate pharmacy that works according to FDA standards has an ‘approved’ generic when they manufacture a drug that contains Vardenafil.
Be cautious about anything termed a ‘Vardenafil substitute’ or a ‘Levitra substitute’. The term ‘substitute’ does not imply that a generic has been produced or that the drug contains any Vardenafil. Be sure that the pharmaceutical company that manufactures your generic Levitra 20 mg is reputable before purchasing.
IS THERE A GENERIC LEVITRA?
In practice, you will find that there are several pharmaceutical companies that specialize in the production of generic drugs. Since Levitra is a popular medication, there are several generics on the market.
Just be sure that the country of origin has a well-regulated pharmaceutical industry. Any drug that contains the same volumes of Vardenafil as Levitra will have the same effect and is therefore a generic Levitra 20 mg.
HOW SHOULD I TAKE GENERIC LEVITRA 20 MG?
Use generic Levitra in the same way as you would use regular Levitra. You should not take it more than once daily, and you should adhere to the dosage recommended on the package insert. Expect it to work within about 60 minutes and to last for 5 – 6 hours.
Some patients prefer to use generic Levitra 20 mg daily, but others use it ‘as needed’ that is to say, shortly before they expect to engage in sexual activity.
WHAT SIDE EFFECTS MAY I NOTICE FROM GENERIC LEVITRA 20 MG?
Common, non-threatening side effects are as for Viagra and Cialis and of course, Levitra and Generic Levitra may cause the same side effects. Headache, flushing and back ache as well as runny nose occur in some patients and are not a cause for great concern. However, if you experience allergy symptoms such as difficulty in breathing, you should get emergency help.
Other rare side effects that may indicate cause for concern are irregular heartbeat, changes in vision, light headedness, swollen hands or feet, and priapism (an erection that lasts for longer than 4 hours). In such cases, help should be sought.
WHAT MAY INTERACT WITH GENERIC LEVITRA?
Consult your doctor if you are using any medication for chronic conditions or on a regular basis and remember to inform him of your Levitra use when he prescribes for you. Antibiotics, heart medications and HIV/AIDS medications are among the medicines that may interact with generic Levitra 20 mg.
LEVITRA AND ALCOHOL
In general light to moderate alcohol use does not present a danger. However, its use may aggravate side effects, so it is best avoided. Grape fruit and grapefruit juice has a similar interaction with Vardenafil.
