It is extremely important that you take Levitra exactly as your doctor prescribes. Be very careful not to take bigger or smaller amounts or administer the drug for a longer time than recommended and follow the directions given on the prescription label. Your doctor may decide to change the Levitra dosage occasionally in order to ensure that you reap maximum benefit from using the drug.
You should take each dosage of the drug with one filled glass of water. Levitra can be administered with or without food. Usually, the drug is taken only when it is required, that is, about an hour before the commencement of sexual activity. An erection however will not occur simply by taking the pill and hence you must pay special attention to your doctor’s instructions.
Be careful not to take Levitra more than once every 24 hours and allow at least one day between consecutive dosages. Should your erection be painful or last for a prolonged period of time (beyond 4 hours) you should get medical attention immediately. Prolonged erection, also known as priapism, can end up damaging the penis.
