4. What is Generic levitra (Vardenafil) 20mg used for?
Ans. Vardenafil is a drug used to treat male sexual function problems like impotence or erectile dysfunction. In combination with sexual stimulation, it works by increasing blood flow to the penis to help a man get and keep an erection. During a penile erection, the penis fills with blood and the blood vessels that supply the penis with blood expand, or dilate, and the vessels that take blood away from the penis contract. The chambers in the penis are thus filled with blood.
With the accumulation of blood in the penis, erection results and Vardenafil belonging to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase type-5 (PDE5) inhibitors stop PDE5 from constricting the arteries.
Vardenafil relaxes the arteries and thus enhances blood flow when a man is sexually aroused. This active ingredient works on the chain of reactions within the penis during arousal. When a male is sexually aroused, nitric oxide is released into his penis, and this triggers a chain of reactions, hence, causing an erection.
