Levitra Patient Information

Levitra is a commonly prescribed drug prescribed for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Levitra works by relaxing muscles and facilitating blood flow to the penis during sexual activity, resulting in an increased ability to achieve and maintain erections.

There are certain circumstances in which you should not take, or should stop using, Levitra:

• If you are currently taking nitrates - the combination of these two drugs can lead to a sudden drop in blood pressure that can cause fainting, heart attack, or strokes.

• If you experience side effects such as dizziness or nausea, or numbness, pain, or tingling in your neck, arms, chest, or jaw during sexual activity, stop and contact your physician immediately.

• Contact a doctor or seek emergency care if your erection persists longer than 4 hours or is painful. A prolonged erection can damage your penis.

• Stop taking Levitra and seek emergency medical attention if you experience sudden vision loss.

Let your doctor know if you have experienced any of the following conditions:

• Current or past heart disease, heart attacks, or heart rhythm problems

• Have experienced congestive heart failure or a stroke within the last 6 months

• A history of Long QT syndrome

• Abnormal blood pressure

• Seizures

• Kidney or liver disease

• Blood cell or bleeding disorders

• Stomach ulcers

• Any vision or hearing problems or eye disorders

• Any physical deformities of the penis

• If a doctor has told you that you should not participate in sexual activity

In some patients, Levitra led to decreased blood flow in the optic nerve. This can lead to sudden vision loss. Most of these patients had diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, a pre-existing eye condition, were older than 50, or were smokers. Currently, the reason for vision loss and Levitra's role in it is unknown. Only a small percentage of patients are affected. If you experience full or partial vision loss, discontinue using Levitra and seek emergency medical attention.

Currently, the FDA rates Levitra as a category B drug for pregnancy. Levitra is not approved for use by women, however it is unknown if Levitra can harm an unborn baby. It is also unknown if Levitra is harmful to a nursing baby, or if it passes through breast milk. Therefore, do not use Levitra before telling your doctor if you are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant.
