There is a big difference between the Levitra pills that people usually take and the Levitra Professional pills that are marketed as being fast release.
The biggest change is that Levitra Professional makes use of a gelatinous coating on the outside of the capsule in order to facilitate faster release of the vardenafil.
This gelatin layer as opposed to the traditional hard pill is that the gelatin dissolves instantly in the saliva and at normal body temperatures.
Levitra Professional acts much faster than standard Levitra capsules. It works in about 15 minutes, whereas normal Levitra acts in about an hour.
This is not advisable for certain men though. The faster assimilation time means that it floods the bloodstream and digestive tract with more vardenafil.
This could result in adverse effects like nausea and vomiting. For this reason people who already have gastrointestinal issues are advised to take the normal slow-release pills instead.
The vardenafil found in Levitra Professional is a muscle relaxant that works by making the blood vessels in penile tissue dilate. This increases the flow of blood to the penis.
Do not take Levitra or its variants if you have a course of treatment that utilizes nitrate based drugs like nitroglycerin. Vardenafil reacts to create an acute drop in blood pressure.
Nitrate drugs are used to treat heart diseases and chest pain like angina, arrhythmia and heartburn. Tell your doctor if you have a history of these conditions.
Seek emergency medical attention if your erection begins hurting you. If it lasts for longer than 4 hours, a condition known as priapism, call a doctor.
While engaging in sexual intercourse you might feel dizziness or nausea. If this happens, stop immediately and call a doctor.

If you have a condition like sickle cell anemia, leukemia or hemophilia, tell your doctor, along with ulcers, peronei’s disease and other inherited disorders.
Levitra Professional has been seen to decrease the flow of blood to the optic nerve. This can lead to acute blindness and other eye problems.
