Erectile dysfunction treatment vardenafil (Levitra) is now available as an orodispersible tablet.

Placed on the tongue approximately 60 minutes before sexual activity, the 10mg tablet rapidly dissolves without the need to take separate liquid.

Efficacy of the orodispersible tablet was demonstrated in two 12-week studies of identical design, POTENT I and POTENT II.

The 2 studies enrolled a total of 882 men who had had erectile dysfunction for more than 6 months. In both studies, the orodispersible tablets were significantly superior to placebo for all efficacy measures (p<0.0001 for all), both primary (International Index of Erectile Function and Sexual Encounter Profile questions 2 and 3) and secondary.

Levitra orodispersible tablets are not indicated for initiation of vardenafil treatment in patients with mild hepatic impairment.
