Product is very pricey. Generic wold be great! This drug works well for me with no side affects. 1/2 hr before sex is plenty of time. However, Never, Never use and drink anything with grapefruit or other citrus acids in it! This also includes sodas. Drug does not work, and you will receive a terrible headache!

Took 10mg 1 hour before anticipated sex with my girfriend, maintained a hard erection and had intercourse for over an hour. Had hard erection, itercourse, and orgasm again 6 hours later. Again had a hard erection, intercourse, and orgasm 12 hours later for the 3rd time in a 22 hour period on one 10mg dose. Hey, what more can a guy ask for? Extremely satisfied. Hardly any side effects, no upset stomach, no headaches, some nasal congestion but negligible.

It does not work. I would like to know why.

I tried all four ED drugs and this one worked the best for me. Take the 20mg. Do I get a bit of a headache and a little stuffed up taking Levitra? Sure I do, but I don't care. Having the ability to make love again to my wife has been life changing for me. What I do care about though is the price! Why the hell isn't this covered by Medicare or regular insurance. Has our country become so jaded that only the wealthy can have sex when they age? Are we supposed to be denied one of the most basic functions of the human body because some politicians are screaming that they "don't want to pay for an old guys hard on". Self-serving assholes. These drugs to us are just as important as their diabetes, anxiety, or what ever else they need that we pay for. Who are these people and what right do they have to decide if I can or can't make love to my wife This is not a drug issue but rather a group of hypocritical selfish people on a power trip, making decisions that greatly affect the lives of people like me.

Comment from: reliving my youth, 35-44 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: March 05

After having back problems to include numerous surgeries, erection problems have started to happen. Having talked with my Dr. we decided to give Levitra a try. Works great. A couple things I have noticed. 20mg Rock hard in 30-45 minutes Painful at times Little semen Head ache Stuffy nose Will be hard off and on all day 10mg Rock hard in 40+ minutes More semen than 20mg Still have head ache Stuffy nose Hard off/on all day 5mg Once again Rock hard 40+ minutes Normal amount of semen Hard off/on most of the day Can have sex in the morning and at night still have enough to get going again Slight head ache a little stuffy in the nose but not much Over all noticed the pill work great. I normally take 5-10mg 1-2 hours before sex. Noticed I would be harder/stay longer if I waited 90minutes before sex. Seems to be my magic number. This amount is perfect for me. Can last with out having to worry about the wife finishing. Allows for an easy erection hours after if we want to continue. Now the side effects Head ache Stuffy nose Ringing in the ears erection hurting(once every 5-8 times) nothing to painful but never had it before the pills.

I am 57 and used VARDENAFIL for the very first time from the VA last week, so this review is based only one one sexual activity. I cut the 20mg pill in half as directed on an empty stomach, and used the 10mg dose for the very first time. It works for me, pretty hard erection, I can use some improvement, and will improve with continued self confidence. Am so grateful for this pill. I came 2 times within the first 8 hours of taking the medication, and I am so grateful that I have a great and willing partner to help me along. Will post future reviews as I use it. Some flushing of the face, no headaches, maybe some nasal congestion, but no biggie on side effects. Thank you God. I feel rejuvinated, and have my self confidence back.....Rick

57 yo male suffering from ED for 2 yrs related to diabetes. Was rarely able to have a full erection and had gotten very frustrated losing hardness before or during intercourse with wife. Gave Levitra a try for the first time 4 months ago - 1/2 tab of 20 pill. The results have been amazing for my erection. Usually effective in 20-30 minutes. Best at about 45 minutes or so. My wife says I am bigger and harder than she can remember (married 30+ years). The erection lasts through intercourse. There is a carryover effect often and can acheive good erections later that evening and sometimes next morning without additional dose. This works best in mornings on an empty stomach. Much less effective in evening on a full stomach. So eat light or use in mornings. It has given me a huge boost to my self esteem, much more than I expected. I was beginning to think that normal intercourse was a thing of the past. There are some side effects. I almost always get some nasal congestion which is annoying but tolerable. There is also some flushing to face and ears about half the time, but it doesn't persist for all that long. Very rarely a mild headache. Despite these side effects this has been a wonder drug for me.

I am 76 year old white male with a female friend for over 7 years. I have been using vardenifil for about 5 years as I also began using high blood pressure medicine which I believe led to ED. I consider vardenifil a blessing as it enables us to have a wonderful sex life which I had thought to have ended. It has restored my confidence and feel younger.

I started with Cialis but found it gave me heart burn, so I switched to Stendra which worked very well but my insurance would not cover because it is so new. So they had me try Levitra. I tried my first pill last night and found it worked differently then Stendra but worked well. What was different was that it made my penis rock hard, and in fact I had no problem lasting a solid 30 minutes with it. Unlike Stentra which made me "leak" lots of precum, this pill did not but my orgasm was very good and a normal amount of ejaculate. One thing I did notice was that even after cumming my penis stayed heard but after about 5 minutes with no additional touching it went soft. On the first use of this medicine I was very happy and the only side effect I notices was my upper back and neck got flush, whereas with Stenda it would be my face and ears.

The best I've tried, but with one VERY annoying side effect: SEVERE nasal congestion! I have to use Afrin nasal spray every time! Is this a problem for anyone else?

Comment from: RH, 55-64 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: February 25

I am 64 years old my wife is 66. I am 6' 2" 215 pounds and physically active. However after 42 years of marriage things kind of went soft in the bedroom. For the last two years I've had difficulty maintaing an erection in order to have an orgasm with her. I have better luck by myself. If I use a vibrator it helps. My doctor gave me some 20mg Levitra to try. Last night at 8:30 pm I took one pill and a glass of water. Within 10 minutes my face began to feel flushed and very warm. In another 10 minutes I could feel 'things beginning to stir.' 30 minutes after I took the pill I had an erection that took me back to me youth. I had't seen that angle since I was probably 17! I was amazed how full the head appeared and felt. Overall it was quite atonishing! To say it was firm is an understatement! I told my wife, "Quick, to the bedroom! I don't know how long this will last." We couldn't have been more pleased. After one hour I came with the feeling of bliss we haven't had in years. My wife never had a problem with orgasms. Still doesn't. About 20 minutes later I was back to 'normal.' We did it again at 2am and again at 8:30am. Both times my erection was as strong as the first time. Simply amazing! At about 2:30am I began to get a headache. It became the 'headache from hell' and lasted until about noon. Really nasty!-- Was the headache worth bringing back my youth for a few hours? Oh yeah! I would like to get a prescription but the price is outrageous! My local name brand pharmacies want around $25 for 1 pill!! I've seen online offers from Canadian 'pharmacies' for a fraction of the price but I'm just not sure of the quality and if the business is even legit. ---- RH

Two years ago l had prostate surgery, at first l had no erection problems, other than nothing comes out when l exaculate, though l still had the sensation.Of late my erections have been lacking to the point of not at all. l tried Viagra and only the 100s work for a short time. Of late l have been using the Levitra, and have been having sex up to three times in 24 hours on one pill. Not bad for a 68 year old, and my girlfriend cannot get enough of me.

Levitra takes about 30-60 minutes to work in my case. I have taken 10 mg and had sex in the evening and re-established an erection an hour or two later...and tne next morning on some occasions. I get a bit of a stuffy nose which goes away the next day but it is so worth it. At 56 yr old it has made my wife and I like kids again.

Comment from: Andres, 45-54 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: January 04

I'm 49. White male, 104kg. No medical problem. After 8 month without sex I met gorgeous woman. But, for the first time in my life, no firm erection, and always ejaculating at the very beginning. After 16 days without masturbation, I took Levitra 10mg. 35min. before having sex with her (with water and empty stomach, at noon). Got face rush 25min. after ingestion. After some oral sex, I got a very hard erection that let me have a 10 min. intercourse. Then, a 3 min. stop to avoid a too early ejaculation. Then restarted (again with a very hard erection) a 15 min. intercourse with orgasm. Then 10 min. stop. And got another very hard erection that let me have a 25 min. intercourse with another orgasm. Had to leave :-( but I was ready to get at least one or two more with her. She's French and said: Fabuleux (Fabulous) 4 hours later, alone, I got a hard erection and I've been able to masturbate during 10 min. with orgasm. I got a mild headache 2 hrs later, and a slight dizziness after stepping off my car. A bit thirsty during all the afternoon. Am so grateful for this drug (in fact, I repeatedly whispered Bayer, Bayer, Bayer while noticing its effects) , that despite I only took it to get my confidence back, I guess I hardly would be able to keep that level of rhythm and hardness without it. I guess that I will always have a Levitra in my pocket in case of 'emergency'. I felt like a 20 yo. man and I liked. She liked as well.

Levitra worked perfectly! First time was tonight, at 20 mg. Took 1 hour to work because of a meal I had before. When it did, though, my wife was a very happy camper. Multiple erections possible, but my wife crashed out after the first time. Mild side effects including: flushed face, dizzyness, sense of unsteadyness on my feet, and mild-moderate headache afterwards. All are worth the feeling of being able to satisfy my wife again. I am back in the game!

Comment from: LAD, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: April 27

BP meds have killed the quality of my erections. I am very satisfied with Levitra. My best results are always on a near empty stomach. If I do eat its a very light meal and a 2hr wait before taking it. That appears to be the key to my success for a strong erection. Side effects are occasional light headache the next day and slight nasal congestion.

I tried this med four years ago when the VA changed over from Sildenafil to Vardenafil. I was shocked at how small the pills were(kind of look like a baby asprin), smaller than a tic-tac and light orange in color, but I was willing to try it since sildenafil worked so well for me. It is always nice to have more than one option. My now ex-wife could barely sit down the next morning. I have had three lover's since my divorce all who were not only surprised but idolized me after my excellent performance. We "completed relations" from start to finish four times the first time I used it. And amazingly, I was still ready to function the next morning and evening with very minor stimulation. When I was a teeneager I never had that kind of man power. I felt like a porno star, a total stud. Now the bad news... I experienced facial flushing, an annoying stuffy nose, intense sweating(especially during the summer months). The last dose I had caused such physical misery afterwards I felt as if I was going to die before morning came. It felt like the flu. I have learned to keep drinking a lot of water as the drug seems to make me feel overheated and dehydrated very easily. The worst side effect is severe heartburn the next day unlike anything I have ever experienced. I am considering using a pill splitter for the next dosage I take because I am wondering if a 20mg pill is causing a low level overdose or at least bad reaction from too much medicine. All in all even with the side effects as long as I don't experience any severe-severe-severe trouble it's worth it since it has restored my sexual prowess and allowed me to become a mattress god once again.

Levitra is great, after talking to my dr. he prescribed the 20 mg for me. I have found that it works best on any empty stomach and for me it takes about 45 minutes for a full hard erection to happen. Since using Levitra I am able to achieve and sustain a rock hard erection until I ejaculate. Until starting to use Levitra I was never sure if that was going to happen. I do not know if other guys are experiencing this but when I am having sex and taking levitra, I get a more intense orgasm at the time of shooting, able to usually have sex a second time with the one pill and I have also had an increase in the volume that I shoot at the time of ejaculation. Seems to be almost 3 or 4 times more when using levitra. It takes a bit of time to see what works best, such as timing, when do I need to take my levitra, stimulation during the time I am waiting also makes for a much harder erection. I am a believer, just wish I had not waited so long to talk to my dr. about my ed, he understands and made me feel very comfortable with the conversation.

Wow, I took a 10mg dose for the first time and felt like a 17 year old again!!! I'm 43!! No side affects to report, apart from, seeming to prolong ejeculation, which was not really a problem, it just seemed the love making was an eternity!! My partner was very satified both with my performance and that of the miracalous effect of the drug; approx 15 mins after taking the drug I was able to get fully erect after stimulation from my partner.Well recomended!!

Can be effective sometimes. I am now using 20mg but it is starting to not work as well and I am wondering if it would be safe to raise that to 25 or 30mg to make it more effective. Does anyone know the answer to this?

Comment from: 65-74 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: December 10

Started having problems 5 mos ago. Could be stress with money or just age. Started with a 10mg dose WOW!! Tried a 5mg dose- better yet. Less stuffy nose, no headache or any after effects. and more like the old days. Good and hard, great climax and it lasted as long as we both wanted. Better living thru chemistry ;-) One happy wife and happier hubby!!!
