Side Effects of Orally Disintegrating Vardenafil

Common Side Effects

Orally disintegrating vardenafil has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people received the real medication, while another group was given a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo.
In these studies, the most common side effects of this medication included:
  • Headaches -- in up to 14.4 percent of people
  • Flushing or a sudden warmth or reddening of the face, neck, or upper chest -- up to 7.6 percent
  • Nasal congestion -- up to 3.1 percent
  • Indigestion or heartburn -- up to 2.8 percent
  • Dizziness -- up to 2.3 percent
  • Back pain -- up to 2 percent.

Orally Disintegrating Vardenafil and NAION

Phosphodiesterase type-5 (PDE5) inhibitors, such as orally disintegrating vardenafil, have been associated with rare cases of a condition called nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). This condition can lead to a sudden decrease or loss of vision in one or both eyes. The vision loss can be permanent.
In most cases, people who developed NAION while taking a PDE5 inhibitor had risk factors that increased the chances of developing the condition. These risk factors can include:
Serious vision problems, such as temporary or permanent blindness, are extremely rare and are not necessarily related to the medication. However, it is important to contact your healthcare provider immediately if you notice any loss of vision in one or both eyes. Such an event may be a sign of NAION, and immediate medical treatment is necessary.
