Levitra is a drug intended for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men and is also a PDE-5 inhibitor. Levitra should be taken orally 30 minutes to 60 minutes before sexual intercourse. The initial recommended dose of Levitra is 10 mg. Fatty foods do not affect the pharmacokinetics of the drug, so Levitra can be taken without fear that such food will reduce its effectiveness.
