Vardenafil is a drug commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction. In previous clinical studies, up to 80 percent of men reported that the drug allowed them to have successful intercourse. For the most part, vardenafil starts working within an hour. The medicine comes in tablet form and is usually taken one hour prior to sexual activity. The most common side effects include facial flushing, indigestion, and stuffy or runny nose.

Vardenafil UsesVardenafil has been licensed to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, can be a total inability to achieve an erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. Essentially, erectile dysfunction is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
How Does It Work?Vardenafil works by blocking a chemical that reverses an erection by causing blood to flow out of the penis. More blood in the penis means an improved erection.
