Many men feel ashamed of struggling with ED, even if it only happens sometimes. Whether you're going through something right now that's affecting your sexual health or the problem is chronic, getting medication for the issue is the best route to having the kind of sex you crave.

Vardenafil is one of those medications. 

To learn what it is, how long it takes to kick in, and how vardenafil works, read below.

What Is Vardenafil?

It's important to have all the information about a medication before you take it. Vardenafil is a medication in the Phosphodiesterase inhibitors (PDE) class. It's the generic version of the brand-name ED drug Levitra.

It's one of the less-popular name brands, not for lack of effectiveness, but because of Viagra's (Pfizer) hold on the market.

The FDA approved the brand-name drug in 2003, and the generic version came to market a few years later. Taking the generic version of the drug is no different than taking the branded version in terms of effectiveness. Generic drugs are just as efficient and are much cheaper than name-brand alternatives!

The drug comes in two forms, a swallow tablet and a dissolving tablet. The only difference is that the dissolving tablet dissolves and may get into your bloodstream faster than the kind you swallow. You still need to take both types in advance, which we'll detail below.

What is the Mechanism Action of Vardenafil?

How vardenafil works is much like other erectile dysfunction products on the market. It redirects blood into the penis from the rest of the body, which helps the penis stay erect.

With PDE inhibitors, like vardenafil, the mechanism of action is to dilate the blood vessel in the body, making it easier for blood to flow. This temporary manipulation of the vascular system can increase the ability to get erections for anywhere from four to six hours.

The drug is not designed to create erections on its own. To "activate" the drug after taking it (see below), you or your partner will need to stimulate the penis sexually. Specifically, the drug instructions suggest "stroking," but we're sure you have your own methods.

How Long Does Vardenafil Take To Work for Erectile Dysfunction? 

That's a good question and not one you want to be frantically googling while your date is getting undressed. Taking vardenafil will require some planning ahead, or hopeful planning, depending on the situation.

Depending on the type of pill you take and personal biological factors, the drug can take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to kick in. Plan for an hour, just to be safe.

The pills are very discreet, and your date will never know what you're taking (if that's important to you). Your privacy is important to us. Shipping and billing are also discreet if you order vardenafil online from UPGUYS.
