Any person who uses Internet every day comes across a lot of online advertising. No wonder that recently online promoting has become very popular with sellers as Internet shopping has shown rapid growth within the last decade. Nearly every product is promoted online: food, restaurants, tourism services, cars, clothes and so on. Among all the variety of products and services one can figure out pharmaceutical products which sales via online pharmaceutical services have increased several-fold since the appearance of online pharmaceutical market.
To promote their goods and services companies often use so-called “infomercial” (a combination of “information” and “commercial”), a promotional video that shows all the advantages of the given product. Of course, the major focus of the infomercial is product’s strong features so in most cases no information is provided about the product’s possible weak points. It does not mean that producers do not tell the truth about the product. It just means that they don’t show the complete picture. In case of pharmaceutical products this situation may be very important as it involves the human health.
Levitra (Vardenafil) Infomercial: What is it about?
If we talk about Levitra we will see that advertising underlines its strengths. Surely, Levitra, one of the TOP three ED treatment drugs together with Viagra and Cialis, has a lot of advantages.
Levitra (Vardenafil) is an ED treatment drug that contains Vardenafil, the PDE5 inhibitor aimed at treating the sexual dysfunctions of different aetiology. With the appearance of PDE5 inhibitors and Vardenafil, in particular, the erectile dysfunction has stopped being difficult problem that can be treated only in very limited number of cases. With Levitra it is just enough to take one pill 40-60 minutes before the planned sexual intercourse and enjoy wonderful sexual relations during 4 or 6 hours. Vardenafil facilitates the increased blood flow into the penis by means of relaxing muscles and widening the blood vessels. Increased blood flow helps reach and maintain erection during the complete sexual intercourse. One should make the important note that Levitra works only under the condition of sexual excitement. So, the man should get excited in order to trigger the mechanism of Levitra’s action.
Levitra is effective in elderly men over 60 years old as it helps improve the blood flow to the penis which can worsen due to the age-related problems with blood vessels. Levitra is also effectively used in younger men who suffer from ED mainly of psychological aetiology due to constant stresses, working tension or some serious health disorders.
Vardenafil does not require regular intake so it is very easy to take the drug just as needed. Thus, advantages of Levitra promoted in infomercials are true and evident: the given ED treatment drug is effective, easy to take and facilitates not only the improvement of sexual function, but also the improvement of sexual relations as a whole.
Levitra contraindications Infomercials don’t tell about
As a rule, infomercials don’t mention the fact that Levitra cannot be prescribed for everyone. Usually, patients under 18 years old are not recommended to take Levitra. Another group of patients who are not prescribed Vardenafil covers people with the health disorders. During its medical action Vardenafil employs certain internal systems of the human body. Cardiovascular system helps deliver larger blood volumes, gastrointestinal system facilitates the substance removal from the human body, hematopoietic systems provides blood in the required volume. These internal systems bear the most significant load during the Levitra therapy that is why major precaution and contraindications refer to them.
Patients who have irregular heartbeat or have recently experienced heart attack (up to 6 months) and heart stroke are strongly recommended to postpone taking Levitra even in small dosages. Arterial hypertension and seizures are also the reason for the doctors not to prescribe Levitra for patients.
Any gastrointestinal organ participating in the process of removal Vardenafil from the body should be in quite good state in order to bear the larger load. Therefore, kidney, liver and stomach disorders should be excluded when taking Levitra. If the patient has haemophilia or other blood disorders he may get into real trouble during the Vardenafil action.
One should also mention another problem that makes the prescription of Levitra impossible. Physical deformity of the penis may become serious obstacle for the Vardenafil therapy as it is dangerous to have stronger erection (or just erection). Physical deformity of penis may lead to further damages if penis gets erected.
People with the liability to allergies should take Levitra very carefully in order to avoid unexpected and dangerous reactions.
Don’t forget about the medical drugs prescribed for the treatment of the above-mentioned states. Being very effective substance Vardenafil can enter the conjunction with the other medications and also cause serious diseases. The most dangerous medications include remedies for the arterial hypertension containing nitrates as they may cause sharp decrease of blood pressure, antibiotics as they may cause excessive load on liver and kidney. Other strong drugs that should not be co-administered with Levitra involve antifungal, seizure treatment and HIV therapy medications.
Side Effects of Levitra: Do They Destroy the Image of the Drug?
If taken properly in dosages prescribed by the doctor Levitra causes very rare side effects which, as a rule, disappear in the course of treatment. The most common side effects are headaches, nausea, dizziness and hot flashes.
Two major reasons of side effects occurring during the therapy include incorrect dosage that is larger than recommended as well as health weak points described in the previous section. Of course, there are some reactions in a healthy man who has no health problems. In order to prevent all the negative consequences producers of the branded product and generic pills put customers’ guide inside each pack of the medication. By doing this the producers obtain two benefits: firstly, they meet the international quality standards and secondly, they declare openly about the possible side effects. Such transparent and open behavior adds a lot to the market reputation of Levitra rather than destroys it.
Side effects may influence any human organ involved in the sexual process, process of drug absorption and removal. The picture of side effects is similar to that of the contraindications and precautions.
Cardio-vascular consequences may include hot flushes, hypotension state, increased heart rate, myocardial ischemia, tachycardia, sudden cardiac heath and other disorders related to the heart, blood vessels and so on. Patient taking Levitra may also feel dizzy or suffer from headaches which in some cases may be quite severe.
Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, gastritis or gastroenteritis are side effects related to the gastrointestinal system. The man may also have problems with breathing, sore throat, rhinitis or nasal dryness or stuffiness.
Vardenafil may stimulate or on the contrary retard the patient’s nervous system. As a result, the patient may feel excessively nervous, anxious or aggressive. He may experience insomnia or unusual changes in behavior, difficulties to concentrate.
The genitourinary side effects of Levitra that may happen to the patient may include urination problems and priapism, the painful erection lasting for 4 hours and more.
On rarer cases the man may experience pain in bones or muscles, skin reactions such as itching, redness and so on, uncommon exhaustion or fainting and problems with colour perception or hearing.
Any abnormalities of the usual physical state can signalize about the serious health problems that may occur. In case of any bad health condition the patient should urgently apply for the medical assistance.
