Staxyn treats sexual dysfunction by increasing circulation and improving blood flow to the penis, which makes it easier for men to get firm erections. Clinical studies have shown that Staxyn helps men get and maintain erections for sexual activity. When taking Staxyn, you must be sexually aroused in order to get an erection. After sexual intercourse, your erection will dissipate naturally.
Staxyn works well for most men with sexual dysfunction. You can use Staxyn on a frequent or occasional basis before sexual activity. The recommended starting dose is typically 10-milligrams. A US-licensed physician can help you determine the proper dosage. The side effects of Staxyn are usually mild. Ask your doctor if Staxyn is the right medication for you.
Staxyn is a dissolvable tablet. When taking Staxyn, place the tablet under your tongue and allow it to dissolve completely. Staxyn is not meant for daily use. Never take more than one dose of Staxyn per day. You can take Staxyn approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour before sexual activity. Tell your doctor about your medical history and current health conditions before taking Staxyn. A US-licensed physician can help you determine if Staxyn is the right sexual dysfunction treatment for you. Only take Staxyn as directed by a US-licensed physician or pharmacist. Talk to you doctor if you have any questions about taking Staxyn. Never start or stop Staxyn without speaking to your doctor. If you experience side effects while taking Staxyn, consult a medical professional about your sexual dysfunction treatment options.
To minimize side effects, always start with the lowest recommended dose of Staxyn. Your doctor can adjust the dose based on your reaction to the medication. Your doctor may be able to increase or decrease your dose to get the desired effect. Tell your doctor if you experience unwanted side effects while taking Staxyn.
Some patients may experience side effects while taking Staxyn. Minor side effects may include headache, redness in the face, nasal congestion, faintness, or back pain. These side effects should go away after a few hours. Talk to your doctor if side effects persist.
You should not take Staxyn if you have cardiovascular problems, including arrhythmia, high blood pressure, and low blood pressure. Tell your doctor if you have ever had heart surgery.
Provide your doctor with a list of your current prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Your doctor needs this information to prevent unwanted side effects and potentially dangerous interactions. Stendra can affect the way other medications work. Never start or stop taking any prescription medications without consulting a physician. Do not increase or decrease your dosage without your doctor’s permission. You may not be able to take Stendra if you’re currently taking nitrates, including Minipress (Prazosin HCL), Hytrin (Terazosin HCL), Flomax (Tamsulosin Hydrochloride), Cardura (Doxazosin Mesylate), or Uroxatral (Alfuzosin HCL). Tell your doctor if you take cardiovascular medications, including quinidine, procainamide, or amiodarone. Do not take Staxyn with HIV medications including, Norvir (Ritonavir) and Crixivan (Indinavir Sulfate). You may not be able to take Staxyn if you’re currently taking certain antifungal medications including Nizoral (ketoconazole), Sporanox (itraconazole), and erythromycin. Do not take Staxyn with other sexual dysfunction medications.
All FDA-approved sexual dysfunction medications are PDE5 inhibitors, which work by increasing blood flow to the penis. However, there are some differences between these three medications. Viagra was the first FDA-approved treatment for sexual dysfunction and is one of the most popular treatment options. It can start working in 30 to 60 minutes. Cialis is a long-lasting sexual dysfunction medication that can last for up to 36 hours. It can start working in 30 to 60 minutes. Staxyn is the newest FDA-approved sexual dysfunction treatment. It can start working within 15 minutes – faster than any other sexual dysfunction medication on the market.
Some illegitimate online pharmacies sell so-called “generic” Staxyn. However, there is no FDA-approved generic version of Staxyn available in the US market. Counterfeit medications are not safe because they are not regulated. Many counterfeit pills are produced in third-world countries with lax safety standards. Always order your prescription medications from a reputable US-licensed pharmacy that sells authentic, brand name medications.

USES: Vardenafil is used to treat male sexual function problems (impotence or erectile dysfunction-ED). In combination with sexual stimulation, vardenafil works by increasing blood flow to the penis to help a man get and keep an erection. This drug does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, syphilis). Practice "safe sex" such as using latex condoms. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
HOW TO USE: Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start taking vardenafil and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take this medication as directed by your doctor, usually as needed. Take vardenafil, with or without food, about 1 hour before sexual activity. Do not take more than once daily. Doses should be taken at least 24 hours apart. Dry your hands before handling this medication. Remove the dose from the blister package right before use. Place the tablet on your tongue and allow it to dissolve completely. Do not crush or split the tablet. This medication should not be taken with liquid. Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while using this medication unless your doctor or pharmacist says you may do so safely. Grapefruit can increase the chance of side effects with this medicine. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details. Vardenafil disintegrating tablets are absorbed differently in the body than vardenafil film-coated tablets. Do not switch from one to the other without consulting your doctor. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve.
SIDE EFFECTS: Headache, flushing, or dizziness may occur. Vision changes such as increased sensitivity to light, blurred vision, or trouble telling blue and green colors apart may also occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. To reduce the risk of dizziness and lightheadedness, get up slowly when rising from a sitting or lying position. Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. Sexual activity may put extra strain on your heart, especially if you have heart problems. If you have heart problems and experience any of these serious side effects while having sex, stop and get medical help right away: severe dizziness, fainting, chest/jaw/left arm pain, nausea. Rarely, sudden decreased vision, including permanent blindness, in one or both eyes (NAION) may occur. If this serious problem occurs, stop taking vardenafil and get medical help right away. You have a slightly greater chance of developing NAION if you have heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, certain other eye problems ("crowded disk"), high blood pressure, if you are over 50, or if you smoke. Rarely, a sudden decrease or loss of hearing, sometimes with ringing in the ears and dizziness, may occur. Stop taking vardenafil and get medical help right away if these effects occur. In the rare event you have a painful or prolonged erection lasting 4 or more hours, stop using this drug and get medical help right away, or permanent problems could occur. Get medical help right away if you have any very serious side effects, including: fast/irregular heartbeat, seizures, temporary memory loss. A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing. This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

PRECAUTIONS: Before taking vardenafil, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: heart problems (such as heart attack or life-threatening irregular heartbeat in the past 6 months, chest pain/angina, heart failure), stroke in the past 6 months, kidney disease (dialysis), liver disease, high or low blood pressure, a severe loss of body water (dehydration), penis conditions (such as angulation, fibrosis/scarring, Peyronie's disease), history of painful/prolonged erection (priapism), conditions that may increase the risk of priapism (such as sickle cell anemia, leukemia, multiple myeloma), eye problems (such as retinitis pigmentosa, sudden decreased vision, NAION), bleeding disorders, active stomach ulcers. Vardenafil may cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). QT prolongation can rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeat and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting) that need medical attention right away. The risk of QT prolongation may be increased if you have certain medical conditions or are taking other drugs that may cause QT prolongation. Before using vardenafil, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all the drugs you take and if you have any of the following conditions: certain heart problems (heart failure, slow heartbeat, QT prolongation in the EKG), family history of certain heart problems (QT prolongation in the EKG, sudden cardiac death). Low levels of potassium or magnesium in the blood may also increase your risk of QT prolongation. This risk may increase if you use certain drugs (such as diuretics/"water pills") or if you have conditions such as severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting. Talk to your doctor about using vardenafil safely. This drug may make you dizzy or cause vision changes. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires alertness or clear vision until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. This medication may contain aspartame. If you have phenylketonuria (PKU) or any other condition that requires you to limit/avoid aspartame (or phenylalanine) in your diet, ask your doctor or pharmacist about using this medication safely. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of this drug, especially QT prolongation (see above). This medication is not usually used in women. Therefore, it is unlikely to be used during pregnancy or breast-feeding. Consult your doctor if you have any questions about this medication.
DRUG INTERACTIONS: See also How to Use section. Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. A product that may interact with this drug is: riociguat. Vardenafil can cause a serious drop in your blood pressure when used with nitrates, which can lead to dizziness, fainting, and rarely heart attack or stroke. Do not use vardenafil with any of the following: certain drugs used to treat chest pain/angina (nitrates such as nitroglycerin, isosorbide), recreational drugs called "poppers" containing amyl or butyl nitrite. If you are also taking an alpha blocker medication (such as doxazosin, tamsulosin) to treat an enlarged prostate/BPH or high blood pressure, your blood pressure may get too low which can lead to dizziness or fainting. To manage this drug interaction, you should not start vardenafil treatment with the disintegrating tablet. Your doctor will start treatment with a lower dose of the regular vardenafil tablets first to minimize your risk of low blood pressure, and then may direct you to switch to vardenafil disintegrating tablets later. Other medications can affect the removal of vardenafil from your body, which may affect how vardenafil works. Examples include azole antifungals (such as itraconazole, ketoconazole), macrolide antibiotics (such as clarithromycin, erythromycin), HIV protease inhibitors (such as indinavir, ritonavir), hepatitis C virus protease inhibitors (such as boceprevir, telaprevir), rifampin, among others. Many drugs besides vardenafil may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, procainamide, quinidine, sotalol, among others. Do not take this medication with any other product that contains vardenafil or other similar medications used to treat erectile dysfunction-ED or pulmonary hypertension (such as sildenafil, tadalafil).
