Vardenafil is available in the market under several dosages of varying strengths i.e. 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg. The medicines like Zhewitra or Vilitra with an active ingredient of Vardenafil HCL may be prescribed by the doctors.

Vardenafil vs. Viagra

Vardenafil is often compared with Viagra. The main difference between Generic Levitra i.e. Vardenafil and Viagra is that the effect of this medicine lasts for a longer duration as compared to Viagra. It is observed that the patient achieves a harder erection for around 4 hours of its
consumption while the effect of Viagra remains for a shorter time period.

However, the doctor’s decision is final as to which medicine should be taken by you to treat ED. Sometimes, the initial dosage may be of 10 mg which may be later increased or reduced depending upon the patient’s current medical health.

How does Vardenafil work?

Vardenafil treats the major causes of ED in men. The stress around the blood vessels or the inadequate blood flow in the penis may be one of the reasons for not causing a complete erection. The active ingredient Vardenafil provides ample blood flow in the penis and relaxes the smooth muscles around the pelvic organs. As the stress around these organs is reduced and blood flow is boosted in the penis, men
can achieve a harder erection for a longer time. This leads to satisfactory sexual intercourse and men experience longer playtime during sex.
