Levitra pills are composed of vardenafil, a member of the category of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. Levitra will only work when you are sexually stimulated. What it does is reduce the effect of the natural chemical in your body which makes erections not to last. Levitra 5mg allows an erection to persist long enough for you to finish sexual activity.*
Levitra medicine should be kept out of the sight and reach of children.
