Reviews for Levitra
"82 years old. Started Viagra 25 mg at age 75years old when my plumbing became unreliable. Had to increase over the years to more than 100 mg and still not a sure thing. Also take 5 mg Cialis daily for BPH and have mild version of prostate cancer. Ordered one Levitra 20 mg for a test and paid $26.44. It was well worth it and both my wife and myself got our money's worth."
"I guess it worked for ED issues but had a headache so bad thought it gave me an aneurysm. Tried it a few times same result. Now when having sex get same terrible headache. Can not function and leaves me unable to even move sometimes. Was prescribed another med to take before attempting sex to prevent headache but 90+ percent of time it's bad and debilitating. Did not have headaches during sex before trying it."
"71 years old; Have been taking for 10 years; use 10 mg, take it 45 minutes after eating; love it - full and hard erections with stimulation - every time; some flushing of face and mild indigestion."
"Longer time for reaction than viagra"
"I have been taking Levitra for years I was 350 lbs and it worked great now that I've lost 100 lbs its not working and I don't know why I'm off all my meds due to weight loss and now it doesn't work at all. Even Viagra doesn't work. The only thing I'm taking now is a asprin a day that I wasn't taking before I would like to know what happened the doctor doesn't know why it quit working after all these years"
"Took 100mg. It did work and intercourse was awesome. Personally recommend. Took one hour before intercourse. Great results!!!!!!!!"
"I started out with 20 mg but it worked to well. I now take 10 mg (by cutting my 20 in half). The time I allow before I play is 30-45 minutes. I am sold on this. The Big V did nothing for me. I am 72 and going 2-4 times a week"
"I'm 64 and have been taking viagra for several years. I received a sample of 20mg levitra x10 and wow, I'm switching. Works quickly. Had hard erections on and off all day and the next. Had AM erection on third day. Mrs. very happy."
"Had tried Levitra 20mg but only got semi hard and not solid erection and could not come at all. Have recently tried Levitra professional and hardly worked at all yet they say this an improved version but did nothing for me at all. Very disappointing"
"I started with Levitra 10 mg almost 3 month ago. The first time I used it it took 90 minutes for the erection. After that it took from 150 to 180 minutes For the erection. Why?"
"Having tried 10mg which started to work I tried the 20mg. Took over 90 minutes before it kicked in and started getting aroused .Tried intercourse 5 times but each time lost my erection after a few minutes so very disappointed Apparently they now have a new more recent and improved Levitra called Levitra professional so will try that and see if any better"
"I used 10mg Levitra for the first time. Felt it starting to work after about 1 hour. Certainly fuller and wider but not longer but still couldn't come. No headaches . Tiny bit of face flushing but did have 1 large glass of white wine to relax before initiating anything. Think if I had taken 20 mg it would have done the trick as 10mg too weak for me and much better than viagra or Cialis. Will definitely use again but 20mg next time"
"Best I've used yet ,definitely"
"Experience is generally very positive. Mostly strong results with manageable flushing and head pressure. Not really bad enough to be called a headache. However there have been a few times that the drug has let me down with good sexual stimulation. I have wondered if the drug interfered with orgasm but maybe that’s just the reality of being 63. Fortunately I maintained an erection so I was able to please my partner (a lot) which was more important to me than my orgasm. The drug indications are that it can be taken without regard to food but avoid just grapefruit. I am reading a few reviews online that taking it with an empty stomach produces better results. I may try that. Sometimes when I take it I feel no symptoms at all and that’s when I sometimes think it may not be successful. I’m wondering if it’s possible to build up a tolerance to it."
"Tried all three (V, C, and L), but Levitra works the best for me. I buy the 20mg and split in half. About 30mins to 1 hr in, I have a very strong erection. I can usually ejaculate and still maintain an erection. (mixed blessing for my SO's) I should note that I don't ejaculate as much semen while on other ED meds. However, it tends to work best for me after several hours, and usually I can maintain a rock hard erection well into the next day."
"After nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy at 48, I recovered function after a few months. After 15 years, erections that are "adequate" gradually become more of a challenge and recently started Levitra. (I had liked it better than Viagra or Cialis when I was still recovering from surgery, before nature helped make them unnecessary.) I tried 20mg and was VERY pleased with the result, but felt "buzzed" and uncomfortable for days. Cut it in half, and still effective (though not as dramatic). Cut again to 1/4 and happy with the results."
"It’s probably individual. Try all three main ED drugs and choose the one best for you at the moment. I’ve tried all three. Cialis is in a different class. I get no side effects until I’ve been taking it 4-5 Days running. Then I get the leg cramps. I get some minor headaches. Viagra and Levitra are similar. Nasal stuffiness worse with viagra. Stomach upset worse with Levitra, so that’s a wash. Both take an hour to reach full affect. Viagra lasts longer, but Levitra is more intense. Pick your poison!"
"Have powerful erections, but suddenly at age 72 began to loose erection during intercourse. Levitra cured the problem. Been using it for a year—very effective, although time needed can be 30 minutes to an hour. Once a week intercourse at age 73 is still routinely necessary to maintain healthy sexual life."
"I can do it twice in about an hour. Taking Norco with Levitra: I get much smaller but last longer. Stopped taking Norco for 4 days. A lot bigger and harder. Results in about 20 minutes but if I wait 2.5 hours the best results. 14 hours later I wake up after sleeping 8 hours waking up at 8 am could go again at full size...but she never stays over. But I have a PROBLEM starting at around 11am: headache and bad DEPRESSION for the rest of the day till 10pm bedtime."
"70 years old - I get this thru the VA (they tried to get me to switch to Viagra but gave me an exception to stay on Levitra when I complained). I've had great results with this IF I am exercising regularly - like 30 minutes a day on a stationary bike. Even with the exercise it only works with about a six day interval - which is enough for me and 60 year old wife. Slight stuffiness with 10mg (get the 20mg tab and half it for more doses) - the stuffiness in the nose goes away after about three hours. For me, the Levitra works best after seven hours and will work up until about twelve hours. Good for about a 40 minute romp."
"I took the 20 mg dosage. I was able to get about a 50% erection. However, I got hives mainly on the backs of my upper legs and the back of my head."
"Tried it ... suggest when one are not so tired from work, take it will perform better than having a tiring day and takes it. Well, it does had great effect on it. As a 44yo man, I tried it on one day as I do not have a lot of work in the morning. Meet gf in the mid afternoon after 2 hours of food consumption as instructed.. great work out with my girl. Have 3 times within an hour plus and I still wana keep going for fourth shot but my girl already burn out... I believe a good rest before work out do wonders"
"Levitra, 10 mg, produces consistent erections with the effects lasting 8 hours. It is important to take the pill with a full glass of water on an empty stomach to allow the drug to enter the small intestine. Wait 45 minutes after taking the pill and then drink something sweet, juice or a small glass of wine. This sends sugar into your intestine, which promotes absorption of the drug into your bloodstream. Within one hour after taking the pill you should be ready for sex, with a consistent and lasting erection. My age is 67 and Levitra has vastly improved my sex life and confidence in initiating sex. Levitra is expensive, but the 20 mg pill costs the same as the 10 mg pill, so best value is to buy the 20 mg pill and split it."
"Had 2 pills of 20 mg (max dose recommended is just 20mg) after the food but now it's been 2 days I can't even walk because my back is paining and legs are killing me feel like veins are clogged. Can't even sit can't even stand. I'm so irritated guys. I'm taking panadol. Just need to know how long stays in your body......"
"I had a Radical Prostatectomy at age 50. It left me impotent for about 3 years, but I lost about 60 lbs and I've been swimming for 2 years now. Levitra has help me achieve a strong erection when paired with the right stimuli. Some times the side effects are horrible in the form of a very bad head ache and other times it is hardly noticeable. I must be physically fit enough for sex or my conservative Chinese doctor would not have prescribed it. Since I had cancer in even core of the prostate, the surgery was extensive. I though I was sexually doomed after the surgery, but cardiovascular exercise has helped me tremendously. The nerves are damaged but increasing the health of the circulatory system has benefited my ED condition. It helps!"
