Vardenafil Medication Information for Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (impotence) means that an erection does not occur or is not maintained. There are several causes for erectile dysfunction, the most common of which is narrowing of the blood vessels in the penis. Vardenafil is a vasodilator, which means that by dilating blood vessels, it works to improve blood flow, thereby increasing blood flow to the penis.

Vardenafil works by blocking the action of a chemical in the body called phosphodiesterase type 5. As a result, the blood vessels dilate and after sexual arousal, blood flow to the penis improves and an erection occurs. You can get this medicine by prescription.
