Levitra FAQ

Who makes it?

Levitra is made by Bayer of Germany and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) plc of the UK. In November 2001, Bayer and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) signed a worldwide co-promotion and co-development agreement to launch a new treatment for men seeking to improve their erectile function. Since then, both companies have been working together on the development of Levitra.

With these companies’ strong histories in healthcare and pharmaceuticals, the Bayer and GSK co-promotion represents a powerful partnership committed to improving men’s health through new treatment options.

Has it been approved in the US and UK?

Levitra was approved on March 7, 2003, by the European Commission and it has now been approved for the UK. Also, Levitra was approved on August 19, 2003, by The Food and Drug Administration. This was based on the data included results from more than 3,750 men representing a broad patient population.

What are the differences between Viagra and Vardenafil (Levitra)?

Vardenafil (Levitra) generally comes in smaller doses (5, 10, and 20mg), has fewer side effects, and delivers a faster reaction time than Viagra.

Is it dangerous to drink alcohol when taking Levitra?

In clinical studies, 20mg of Levitra was taken with a blood alcohol level of .08 (the legal limit in most states) and showed no adverse reactions to heart rate or blood pressure.

While it is not dangerous to consume moderate amounts of alcohol with Levitra, alcohol itself (with or without Levitra) makes erections more difficult. To get the best benefits and most enjoyable experiences you should limit your alcohol consumption as much as possible.

Can women take Levitra?

No. Levitra is for men only.

Does Levitra increase sex drive and desire for sex?

No. Levitra is not a hormone or aphrodisiac. It does nothing to help a mans sex drive. It only helps a man achieve an erection who is already sexually stimulated and ready for sex.
