Men Home > Orally Disintegrating Vardenafil

Orally disintegrating vardenafil is prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction. This medication works by relaxing the muscles of the penis, which increases blood flow to the penis. It comes in the form of a tablet that disintegrates on the tongue. It is taken about one hour before sexual activity, but should not be used more than once a day. Side effects may include headaches, dizziness, and back pain.
