What is Generic Levitra?
The main active ingredient of the medicine Generic Levitra is Vardenafil. The action of this substance is targeted at the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men. In order to understand the mechanism of Vardenafil, it is necessary to say a few words about how an erection occurs and why some men have difficulties with this.
How does an erection arise?
An erection is directly related to the relaxation of the smooth muscles of the cavernous bodies of the penis. If smooth muscles do not relax, blood flow to the penis is impossible and an erection does not occur. In the normal state, smooth muscle shrinks, and the penis has a normal appearance, and the nerve endings of the cavernous bodies begin to release nitrogen oxide. As a result, this leads to relaxation of the smooth muscles of the penis and an erection occurs. Unfortunately, in some men this mechanism is broken and in this case we are talking about impotence.
How does Vardenafil work?
Fortunately, impotence is curable disease. Vardenafil acts in such a way that when the cavernous bodies excrete nitric oxide, it reacts with them and relaxes the smooth muscles of the penis, after which an erection occurs. That is, an erection does not occur immediately after taking the pills Generic Levitra, but only subject to the availability of the sexual stimulation.
The action of Generic Levitra begins after 15 minutes and works for 4-5 hours.
