Clinical Effects of Orally Disintegrating Vardenafil

In clinical studies, orally disintegrating vardenafil has been shown to improve ED in men. In these studies, more men who took orally disintegrating vardenafil were able to get and keep an erection than men who received a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients).
For example, in one study, 60 percent of the men who took orally disintegrating vardenafil were able to maintain their erections long enough to have successful intercourse, compared with 27 percent of the men who received the placebo.
