Generic Levitra Side Effects

Generic Levitra tablets contain the active ingredient Vardenafil. Vardenafil is used of the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Many men all over the world have found Generic Levitra extremely helpful as regards their sex lives, and have found it to be a positive factor in their family lives as a whole.

While it is true that the drug does have recognised side effects, it is also the case that side effects can affect different individuals in different ways. This means that not all of the side effects discussed here may be experienced by people taking Generic Levitra.

One side effect that has been reported by users of the drug in the past has been the phenomenon of flushing. Anyone who flushes can become quite red in the face, as well as other parts of the body. This potentially embarrassing condition can result as a side effect of Generic Levitra. Flushing is easily distinguishable from blushing, due to the fact that blushing only occurs in the facial area.

Rhinitis can also occur as a potential side effect of taking Generic Levitra. In common terms, rhinitis is a running nose. Irritation and inflammation of the internal areas of the nose occur, and dripping of the nose takes place. It is caused by inflammation of the mucous membranes in the nose. As many people in the world actually suffer normally form a runny nose, rhinitis as a result of Levitra use is not really a major problem. At worst it will be an irritating consequence, if it occurs at all.

Dyspepsia can also occur when taking Generic Levitra. This is indigestion, resulting in chronic pain in the upper abdomen. In other cases the pain might not be chronic, but instead just a recurring symptom. Recurrence is classified as Dyspepsia. Bloating, nausea and heartburn are symptoms that can occur alongside dyspepsia. The problem is generally made a lot worse when exertion takes place. The dyspepsia symptoms can be caused by a wide variety of medication. Dyspepsia is generally treated initially by lifestyle modification attempts. Since dyspepsia has been known to result from use of Generic Levitra, if it does occur while using the drug there is generally no reason to see your doctor. Men over 55 years of age might want to monitor the condition if it develops while using the drug however, because that age bracket is susceptible to further complications that many need treatment.

Somnolence is perhaps a more noticeable side effect when it comes to taking Generic Levitra. This is a condition characterised by a need to sleep, or general sleepiness. Reactions may be slowed, and the condition may make one simply want to take rest. It can also manifest as someone sleeping for longer periods than normal. Obviously the medication will contain advice and information as regards difficulties and dangerous situations that can occur if somnolence takes effect. Driving should not be attempted, for example, if somnolence is a factor. Using heavy machinery is also something that should be avoided. Anyone who suffers from a great enough amount of fatigue may also suffer from micro sleeps, sleep episodes that can last as little as half a minute.

Palpitations occur when we are intensely aware of our own heart beat. This happens when we are suddenly aware that our heart is beating abnormally. Whether this is too fast or too slow does not matter. If we feel that our heart is not beating ‘properly’, we are suffering form palpitations. The difference between a normal awareness of the beat rate and an abnormal one is that an abnormal awareness interrupts our daily life, our thoughts. For us to be normally aware of the beat rate would mean that we are focusing on the activity of our heart. Attacks when it comes to palpitations do not normally last too long. If, however, they do, or they are accompanied by other symptoms such as dizziness or sweating, then it may be wise to consult with a doctor.

Other possible side effects include:


Shortness of breath



Chest pain

As stated earlier, side effects are not normally an issue for most people taking Generic Levitra. As with most medicines however, if they persist, consult with your doctor, who can give you professional medical advice on the matter. It is also worth bearing in mind that not all side effects are present for everyone.
