However if the vessels are not wide enough for the blood to flow in the vessel, then the person in unable to gain an erection that is firm for intercourse. There can be a number of causes for the emergence of the ailment erectile dysfunction. Some of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction are:
There are in fact many medications that have been made for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. One such medication is Levitra. Let us see more about it in detail.
Levitra is one of the popular erectile dysfunction medications in the world today. Granted, this medication is not as popular as the medication Viagra, but it is definitely growing in brand value. The active compound in
Levitra is Vardenafil, a very well known PDE5 inhibitor. Levitra is marketed as round, orange pill that is manufactured and sold by Bayer Pharmaceuticals.
Levitra is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of erectile dysfunction since 2003. It acts on the body within 30 minutes of taking the medication and lasts up to 5 hours.
The PDE5 inhibitor in the Levitra medication, Vardenafil inhibits the degrading action of the Phosphodiesterase Type 5 hormone of the body. Phosphodiesterase Type 5 destroys the cGMP of the body that helps in the person getting an erection. In short longer the cGMP stays in the system, the longer the person has an erection. The Corpus Cavernosum of the body is the tissue that is responsible for the erections in men. As the PDE5 is inhibited, the blood vessels and the adjacent muscles relax as well. This relaxation causes the blood in the vessels to enter into them. This causes the blood vessels to swell up causing the muscles to be firm. This stiffness ultimately causes an erection. It should be noted that the Levitra medication will be less than effective in case the person is not stimulated.
