What is vardenafil?

  • Vardenafil relaxes muscles of the blood vessels and increases blood flow to particular areas of the body.
  • Vardenafil is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence).
  • Vardenafil may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Before taking this medicine

  • You should not use vardenafil if you are allergic to it, or if you take other medicines to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, such as riociguat (Adempas).
  • Vardenafil is not approved for men younger than 18 years old.
  • Do not take vardenafil if you are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems. This includes nitroglycerin, isosorbide dinitrate, and isosorbide mononitrate. Nitrates are also found in some recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite ("poppers"). Taking vardenafil with a nitrate medicine can cause a sudden and serious decrease in blood pressure.
  • Tell your doctor if you have ever had:
  • heart disease, heart rhythm problems;
  • a heart attack, stroke, or congestive heart failure;
  • long QT syndrome (in you or a family member);
  • high or low blood pressure;
  • seizures;
  • liver disease, kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis);
  • a blood cell disorder such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia;
  • a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia;
  • a stomach ulcer;
  • hearing or vision problems, vision loss;
  • an eye disorder such as retinitis pigmentosa (an inherited condition of the eye);

Side Effects of Vardenafil

  • headache
  • flushing
  • stuffy or runny nose
  • indigestion
  • upset stomach
  • dizziness
  • These side effects usually go away after a few hours. Call your doctor if you get a side effect that bothers you or one that will not go away.
  • an erection that won’t go away (priapism). If you get an erection that lasts more than 4 hours, get medical help right away. Priapism must be treated as soon as possible or lasting damage can happen to your penis including the inability to have erections
  • color vision changes, such as seeing a blue tinge to objects or having difficulty telling the difference between the colors blue and green.
  • In rare instances, men taking PDE5 inhibitors (oral erectile dysfunction medicines, including vardenafil) reported a sudden decrease or loss of vision in one or both eyes. It is not possible to determine whether these events are related directly to these medicines, to other factors such as high blood pressure or diabetes, or to a combination of these. If you experience sudden decrease or loss of vision, stop taking PDE5 inhibitors, including vardenafil, and call a doctor right away.
