Vardenafil is a PDE5 inhibitor which means it is a drug that has been specifically designed for treating erectile issues; thus allowing men who suffer from this condition to have temporary use of their manhood and be able to perform in sexual activity fully and properly. Although there are three competing brands in terms of oral medications that treats erectile dysfunction, vardenafil is considered to be the safest and most effective of the three because it takes less dosage to get the same effect, yet even men with diabetes and hypertension are able to use it safely.
Vardenafil is a prescription drug so before taking it for the first time, it is important that you first consult your doctor about it so you can be properly assessed and diagnosed. Once you have been prescribed with the medication, it is important that you strictly follow your doctor’s directions. Oftentimes, the prescription given is 10mg of vardenafil. However, if you feel that the dose is too strong, contact your doctor and he will likely lower your dosage. On the other hand, if you feel like the dosage is too weak or doesn’t last the entirety of the sexual intercourse, call your doctor and he will likely increase the dosage for you. Never ever attempt to adjust the dosage yourself because you will be held accountable should something undesirable occur. In addition to this, make sure you never take more than one dosage per day. Even if the drug is indicated on as needed basis, it still does not mean you are going to take more than once per day.
What most people don’t understand about these kinds of oral medications is that they think that when you take the drug that you will immediately have an erection. That is not true because you still need an outside stimulus such as an arousal or stimulation to get an erection.
The truth about vardenafil dosage is that there is more to it than just adding or decreasing dosage. For senior citizens, the dosage given to them is usually just 5mg. This is also the dosage strictly used for patients suffering from liver and kidney disease. The dosage your doctor will give you may actually depend on your past and current medical history.
In order to have the best or maximum effect, it is important that vardenafil is taken at least an hour before any prescheduled sexual intercourse. Make sure that you do not eat a fatty meal prior to taking the dose as your body will have difficulty absorbing the drug and this may result in unsatisfactory weak erection. Also, drinking too much alcohol prior to or when under vardenafil is a no-no.
The reason why vardenafil is effective in treating erectile dysfunction is because it is a PDE5 inhibitor. What this means is that the drug instructs the smooth muscles cells surrounding the cavity corpus cavernosum to relax so that that cavity can be pumped and filled with blood which in turn can lead to an erection. A valve near the base of the penis on the other hand acts as a plug to help retain the blood inside the cavity so the erection can be sustained. This valve then releases the blood as soon as the sexual activity is over.
