How should I take Levitra?
You can take Levitra with
or without food one hour prior sexual activity. For most men, it
works the first time they try it. Levitra may work better at the
third or fourth time you take it. But don't take it more often than
once a day. If you are not satisfied with the results or you feel
any discomfort, consult your doctor about dosage. If you take any
medicines that have nitrates in them (like nitroglycerin for chest
pains) – every day or even once in a while – you should NOT take
Levitra. If you have any concerns, please consult your doctor for
your own protection.
Levitra works well even after drinking moderate amount of alcohol.

should not use Levitra and have sex. Do not take Levitra if you
are allergic to it or any of its ingredients.
Why are generic drugs cheaper than brand ones?
They're cheaper because of the patent system.
When they are first introduced, most new drugs are patent-protected
by the government for 17 years. During that time, other companies
do not have the right to sell the drug. This allows the company
that developed the drug to market it exclusively and make back the
research money that was spent to develop it. When the patent runs
out, drug companies can apply to the Food and Drug Administration
to sell generic versions of the drug. And because they don't have
to worry about investment costs, the competing companies can often
sell the drug from 50 % to 80 % less than the cost of the brand
Is the quality of generic drugs the same as the
The quality and effect is absolutely the same
as well as the ingredients. The only difference you can notice is
the color and the shape of the pill.
Where and how should I store the pills?
The best way to store them is at room temperature,
away from heat, moisture, and direct light. Just like you store
regular pills. Keep the pills out of the reach of children.
Can I mix Levitra with other pills?
Some medicine can change the effect of Levitra.
Your doctor should know all the pills you are taking before you
start taking Levitra. Do not start or stop taking any drugs before
visiting your doctor or pharmacist. This includes prescription and
non-prescription drugs or remedies.
IMPORTANT: Levitra should never be used
with medicine that contains nitrates. If you are taking alpha-blocker
therapy for the treatment of high blood pressure or prostate problems,
you should decrease the dose of Levitra at the same time (within
4 hours) as you take your dose of alpha-blocker. If you are taking
a protease inhibitor, your dose may be adjusted. Levitra should
not be used with any other medical treatments that cause erection.
These treatments include pills, medicine that is injected or inserted
into the penis, implants or vacuum pumps.
Can I overdose Levitra?
To avoid the overdosing, don't take it more
often than once a day. But if it already happened, call your doctor
