The maximum dose of vardenafil for which human data are available is a single 120 mg dose of the film–coated tablets administered to eight healthy male volunteers. The majority of these subjects experienced reversible back pain/myalgia and/or “abnormal vision.”

A suitable time interval following STAXYN (vardenafil hydrochloride orally disintegrating tablets) dosing for the safe administration of nitrates or nitric oxide donors has not been determined.
