Other medicines and Levitra:

Some medicines may cause problems, especially these:

Levitra with food, drink, and alcohol:
You can take Levitra with or without food but preferably not after a heavy or high-fat meal as this may delay the effect. Don’t drink grapefruit juice when you use Levitra. It can interfere with the usual effect of the medicine. Alcoholic drinks can make erection difficulties worse.

It is important to have a check-up with your doctor as soon as possible within the first 6 months of using Vardenafil 10mg Tablets to ensure that your erection problems are not caused by another serious health condition. Even if you feel healthy, your erection problems may be linked to other serious health conditions. Erectile dysfunction may be an early sign of:
- Heart and blood vessel problems.
- High blood pressure.
- High cholesterol.
- You should discuss your symptoms and these conditions with your doctor if you have not already done so.
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. Most of the effects are mild or moderate.
Partial, sudden, temporary or permanent decrease or loss of vision in one or both eyes has been experienced by some patients. Stop taking Levitra and contact your doctor immediately if that happens to you.
Sudden decrease or loss of hearing has also been reported.
Cases of sudden death, fast or altered heartbeat, heart attack, chest pain, and trouble in cerebral circulation (including temporarily decreased blood flow to parts of the brain and bleeding in the brain) have also been reported in men taking vardenafil. Most men who experienced these side effects had heart problems before taking this medicine. It isn't possible to determine whether these events were directly related to vardenafil.
