Overview

Order Vardenafil (Generic Levitra) Online

Vardenafil tablets for erectile dysfunction are the generic version of the better-known brand, Levitra. You can request to buy Vardenafil online, from our UK registered online pharmacy and doctor service. After completing your assessment and checking out, your order will be passed to our UK registered doctors for review. If approved, our pharmacy team will dispense and dispatch your medication to your chosen address. 

While not as well-known as other ED medicines like Viagra and Sildenafil, Vardenafil is a longer-acting medication. The effects can be noticeable for up to 6 hours after taking the dose. For many men, it also works more quickly than Viagra.

How to take Vardenafil

The 10mg strength is usually the starting dose but your doctor will decide the most suitable dose for you. It is available in 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg strengths. Taking a higher strength increases the risk of getting side effects.

Take one tablet about 30-60 minutes before sexual activity. Never take more than one Vardenafil 20mg tablet (or one dose) within 24 hours.

Vardenafil's effectiveness can be reduced if taken with alcohol, so you should avoid drinking when taking this medication. While less prone than Viagra to being affected by food and alcohol, you should also avoid high-fat meals when taking this medication.

How does Vardenafil work?

Like other PDE5 inhibitors, it works by increasing blood flow into the erectile tissue of the penis. This allows men who struggle to get and maintain an erection, to do so more easily. It works to treat erectile dysfunction when sexually aroused but does not have an impact on libido.

How effective is Vardenafil?

Most men notice a firmer and longer-lasting erection after taking Vardenafil. Some men find it works quicker than other erectile dysfunction treatments. However, if the treatment does not work, ask our doctors (or your GP), whether it would be appropriate to increase the dose. Alternatively, they may recommend another treatment.

Doctors often advise trying erectile dysfunction medicines six to eight times, on separate occasions, before giving up and trying another.

How long does Vardenafil last?

With sexual stimulation, the positive effects can last up to about 5 hours after taking a dose.

Other medicines and Vardenafil

If you are taking alpha-blocking medicines, such as tamsulosin or trazodone, you are advised to leave at least six hours between taking your alpha-blocker and Vardenafil.

It cannot be prescribed by our doctors if you are taking nicorandil or nitrate-based medication, such as GTN spray or isosorbide mononitrate tablets for angina. There is a potentially fatal interaction between these drugs and Vardenafil.

Avoid drinking grapefruit juice when taking this medicine because it can affect the way Vardenafil works.

Alternative ED Medicines

Several drugs are available for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Viagra is a well known erectile dysfunction medicine and the cheaper generic, sildenafil is also commonly used for ED. Other options include tadalafil and Spedra


Lower doses of tadalafil can also be taken every day continuously. This is different from taking a dose when required. Taking a lower dose of tadalafil every day means that it will improve erections at any time of the day. For further information, see our blog post discussing Cialis and tadalafil.

FAQ

  • What is Vardenafil?

    It is a drug used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. It is a type of medicine called a PDE5 Inhibitor. Other PDE5 inhibitors include Viagra and Tadalafil. 

  • How does Vardenafil work?

    Vardenafil works by increasing the blood flow in the penis. For men who struggle to get or maintain an erection, this increased blood flow allows for longer-lasting and firmer erections.

  • What is the difference between Vardenafil and Levitra?

    Vardenafil and Levitra are medically equivalent. Vardenafil is simply the active ingredient in the branded medication Levitra. Vardenafil, in the UK, is now available generically and in most cases, is cheaper than Levitra.

  • Is Vardenafil better than Viagra?

    Vardenafil is about as effective as both Viagra (Sildenafil) and Cialis (Tadalafil).
    ED medications are effective in 70-80% of men who use them. Some men may find one works for them while another one doesn't. It is advised to try an ED medication at least 5 times before giving up.

  • Can I take Vardenafil every day?

    No, it is not designed as a daily tablet. Lower doses of Cialis can be taken every day safely and can be more suitable for men who have sex several times a week.

  • Can I drink when taking Vardenafil?

    Drinking can reduce the effectiveness of the medication and should be avoided. Drinking alcohol can also worsen erection problems and reducing your intake may help to improve symptoms.

  • Can I buy Vardenafil over the counter?

    Vardenafil and its brand Levitra, in the UK, are prescription-only medicines. This means you cannot buy it over the counter at a pharmacy. At Simple Online Pharmacy, you can request to buy Vardenafil online from our online pharmacy and doctor service. As part of your order, you must complete an online medical assessment. This is reviewed by our doctors to check it is safe to prescribe for you.  

    If approved, a prescription will be sent to our online pharmacy team for them to dispatch the medicine to your chosen address.

Side Effects

Vardenafil Side Effects

What are the side effects of Vardenafil? 

With any medication you take, there is always a risk of side effects occurring. Some are more common than others, and often side effects may subside with regular use of the medicine. If the side effects do not subside, you should report them to us, your doctor, or pharmacist.

Common side effects include headaches, flushing, dizziness, and nasal congestion.

The side effects listed below are more serious, and you should stop taking Vardenafil, and report these to your GP immediately:

  • An erection that will not go away (priapism). If you have an erection that lasts more than 4 hours, seek medical help immediately. Priapism can permanently damage your penis.
  • Sudden vision loss in one or both eyes. Sudden vision loss in one or both eyes can be a sign of a serious eye problem called non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). Stop taking Vardenafil and call your healthcare provider right away if you have sudden vision loss in one or both eyes.
  • Sudden hearing decrease or hearing loss. Some people may also have ringing in their ears (tinnitus) or dizziness. If you experience these symptoms, stop taking Vardenafil and contact a doctor right away.

For a full list of side effects, please read the patient information leaflet.
