Vardenafil is a drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, which is better known to Australian  men under the brand Levitra.

Two dosage forms of Vardenafil are sold in Australia:

Conventional tablets to be swallowed and washed down with water, if necessary.
Orally dispersible Vardenafil tablets that don’t have to be necessarily washed down with water and can be taken imperceptibly.

You can find other Vardenafil release forms on the online pharmacies:

Different release forms of Vardenafil have the same mechanism of action, based on the additional blood volume flow to the penis. Due to this effect, Vardenafil helps to restore an erection and maintain it throughout the entire sexual intercourse.

When choosing a dosage form of Vardenafil, you should pay attention to the dosage of the active ingredient. One tablet/capsule/jelly sachet can contain 5mg, 10mg, or 20mg of Vardenafil.

The maximum recommended Vardenafil dose is 20 mg. Some men may require higher doses of the drug.

To select an optimal dose, you should begin your erectile dysfunction treatment with an average Vardenafil dose of 10 mg.

If Vardenafil dose of 10 mg is effective, yet causes undesirable side effects, it should be reduced to 5 mg.

If Vardenafil dose of 10 mg does not help you get an erection, you can increase the following dose to 20mg.

Vardenafil is allowed to be taken no more than once a day, and should not be used in combination with other drugs for the erectile dysfunction treatment under no circumstances. If Vardenafil dose is chosen correctly, you won’t need to use any additional medication to treat erectile dysfunction.

Who produces Vardenafil?

Vardenafil drug was developed by Bayer Company. For 15 years already, this company sells Vardenafil tablets under the brand names Staxyn, Levitra, and Vivanza. Bayer is the sole owner of rights to these three brands.

  • The first brand, Levitra, are focused on the global pharmaceutical market.
  • Vivanza and Staxyn brands is little known in Australia, yet is quite popular in Europe and USA.

Bayer is the largest, yet not the only manufacturer of tablets for the treatment of erectile dysfunction Vardenafil. Dozens of pharmaceutical companies from around the world produce Vardenafil tablets, which are not available in Australian market yet.

Vardenafil formula is protected by a patent, which is owned by Bayer Company. The term of this patent protection expires in 2018. After the cancellation of patent protection, Bayer will lose its exclusive rights to Vardenafil, and other pharmaceutical companies will start to deliver the drug to Australia.

Today, Bayer enjoys the lack of competition from other manufacturers, and sells Vardenafil at very high prices.

In 2017, the average Vardenafil cost in Australia is about:

$ 10 – for 1 tablet of 10 mg

$ 12 – for 1 tablet of 20 mg

Many men, who want to restore their sexual function, are not willing to spend $ 10-12 for one Vardenafil dose. As a result, some men refuse the treatment of erectile dysfunction due to high prices, while the second part orders Vardenafil online.

Online pharmacies offer the best prices for Vardenafil tablets, and ensure their delivery to almost any country worldwide. Vardenafil may be sold in online pharmacies under various trade names, such as Filitra, Savitra, Snovitra, or Valetra.

  • Many drug companies do not spend money for the registration and promotion of the original brand, and sell pills for erectile dysfunction treatment under the non-patented name Vardenafil.

Tablets for the erectile dysfunction treatment are sold in online pharmacies without a prescription. However, before you order Vardenafil online, you should mandatory make sure that you have no contraindications for its use.
