Levitra is a common vasodilator used around the world, including Australia. When something is a vasodilator, that means it has the effect of dilating, or expanding, blood vessels, thus allowing more efficient blood flow – think of it like widening a tunnel so more cars can get through. In the case of Levitra, it is commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction which is also known as impotence, the inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection. Some people experience ED for many reasons, including emotional/psychological reasons as well as physiological reasons such as poor vasculature, causing blood to not get to exactly where it needs to go. Not being able to achieve an erection for sexual activity can be a very depressing situation for men, so drugs such as Levitra are on the market to help enhance sexual performance.
Levitra works by essentially increasing the amount of blood that is able to reach the penis, providing the “power” needed to achieve a firm erection. There can be several causes for limited blood flow to the penis, such as a reduced amount of force from the heat’s ventricles (main pumps) and increased resistance throughout the body’s vasculature system, both of which are normal consequences of aging but can be minimized with a healthy diet and exercise. Keep in mind that unlike other drugs such as Viagra, Levitra is not going to sprout an erection like an uncontrolled weed – you first need some sort of sexual arousal in order for the drug to kick into gear. It should not be used as a sexual stimulant (it won’t increase sex drive) and you might want to be cautious of taking it if you have a history of cardiovascular problems including hypertension or angina (chest pain) or a history of stroke and respiratory problems. Some common side effects include shortness of breath, itching/rash, swelling, and wheezing. Be careful when adding this drug to your repertoire because it can interact negatively with other OTC’s or Rx’d drugs. Depending where you live, Levitra is a prescribed drug, so you will might need a doctor’s referral.
According to https://www.nps.org.au/medical-info/medicine-finder/levitra-tablets#how-to-take-levitra, Australia is a region that requires a prescription, however other sources claim you can buy it online though the validity of it is the pure form of the drug are debated. Even if you are able to get your hands on Levitra without a prescription, you should still check with your doctor concerning the the dosage, as it varies according to your personal needs – taking more won’t give you a bigger, stiffer erection, instead it could just give you a heart attack so be advised. Be wary of taking the drug along with alcohol as it can alter the effects of Levitra. Treat the drug as you would with any other and keep in its container in a cool, dry place out of the sun. Again it should be stressed that any drug such as Levitra that alters blood flow throughout your body should be administered and monitored by a healthcare professional. Many men do suffer with ED, so embarrassment shouldn’t be keeping anyone from seeking a solution.
