From the time boys reach puberty, sex becomes a fascinating and lifelong passion that most men enjoy. While men under the age of 40 typically engage in sex on a regular basis, older men 40 and over also sustain an interest in sex and would like to continue enjoying sex until later in life. However, due to a number of conditions such as lower testosterone levels, high blood pressure, diabetes, and others, many men suffer from erectile dysfunction. That is why drugs like Levitra were developed in order to help men be able to achieve and sustain an erection for sexual intercourse.

However, can a drug like Levitra help treat men with premature ejaculation? Premature ejaculation is even more common in men than erectile dysfunction. About 30%, nearly one-third, of all men suffer from a condition where they ejaculate sooner than they or their partner wish on a regular basis.

While there is no FDA-approved treatment for premature ejaculation, there are a number of different remedies that can help men enjoy sex longer. Levitra is a possible option.

What is Levitra?

Levitra is a brand name for the manufactured compound vardenafil HCI. This compound is an FDA-approved drug to treat erectile dysfunction. Levitra works by increasing blood flow to the penis, helping to gain an erection and improve erectile function. Men who normally have trouble getting an erection can engage in regular sexual stimulation after taking Levitra about an hour beforehand. Through increased blood flow in the penis tissue, men can more easily achieve an erection and sustain it through climax.

Levitra is not an aphrodisiac and is not meant to be used as a sexual stimulant. Also, Levitra is intended to help a man achieve an erection, but once climax and ejaculation occurs, the penis may very well deflate as normal. Only in rare occasions will the penis remain erect after ejaculation.

Side Effects of Levitra

Levitra is a prescription drug and may have unwanted side effects. Here is a look at those possibilities:

  • Headache
  • Stuffy or runny nose
  • Flushing
  • Indigestion
  • Upset stomach
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Sinusitis

Is Levitra a Good Remedy for Premature Ejaculation?

The fact remains that there is no one "cure" or treatment for premature ejaculation. Men with premature ejaculation should try a variety of potential remedies to see if one works for him. Remedies may include professional counseling or therapy, prescription antidepressants, topical anesthetics used directly on the penis, herbal and natural supplements, and other self-help options including exercise and specific sex techniques.

Levitra is available only prescription. Talk to your doctor and discuss your premature ejaculation problem. Once you have described the problem, your doctor may decide that Levitra is a possible option to help treat premature ejaculation in your case. While it is possible that your doctor may prescribe Levitra for premature ejaculation, it is likely that it will be in combination with other remedies as well.
