Information about Vardenafil

What is Vardenafil?

Vardenafil is a chemical compound used in some generic erectile dysfunction medications such as Auvitra, Valif and Levitra. The drug helps to relax muscles and increase blood flow to the penis. This helps men gain and maintain an erection. Vardenafil molecular diagram

It belongs to the family of medications known as PDE5 inhibitors. So, it is very similar in chemical makeup to both Sildenafil and Tadalafil.

There are also claims that the compound may be an effective treatment for premature ejaculation. It does this by allowing a man to maintain their erection for longer before ejaculation. There is limited information to justify this claim currently.

Medicines containing the compound contain doses ranging from 2.5mg to 20 mg. A 20mg dose is equivalent to 100mg of Sildenafil Citrate.


How does Vardenafil work?

Like all PDE5 inhibitors, this medication increases blood flow to the penis when a man becomes sexually stimulated. It does this by blocking an enzyme called PDE5. This helps the smooth muscles in the penis to relax. When this happens, blood flow increases.

This drug won't cause a spontaneous erection, it simply helps a man to get one when sexually stimulated. After sexual activity, the blood-flow returns to normal and the erection will go.

For more information on how Vardenafil affects the body, please see the information on PDE5 Inhibitors here.


How long do the effects of Vardenafil last?

The compound has the strongest effect around 1 to 2 hours after intake.

It has a half-life of 4-5 hours, so the effects reduce by half by the end of that period. In practice, however, the medicine can remain effective for longer periods than Sildenafil Citrate products.

Since the effects last for several hours, men may be able to achieve multiple erections during that period. This means a man could engage in sexual activity more than once.
