The outlook for men with erectile dysfunction (ED) has improved enormously in the first 14 years of this century – so much so that almost all patients nowadays can be assured of a return to fairly successful intercourse.
Further treatments continue to be developed, and an ingenious new one was released in 2014.
Many males feel that the new treatments for erection difficulty (formerly known as 'impotence' or 'impotency') have transformed their lives.

Male impotence is a common problem among men and is characterized by the consistent inability to sustain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse or the inability to achieve ejaculation, or both. Erectile dysfunction can vary. It can involve a total inability to achieve an erection or ejaculation, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only very brief erections.

Achieving an erection is a complicated process, requiring transmission of sensations from the genital area to the nervous system and the return of nervous impulses to the muscles and blood vessels of the penis. Anything that interferes with this interchange, such as disease or injury of the blood vessels, muscles, or nerves, can make achieving and maintaining an erection difficult. Psychological factors, such as anxiety and depression, can also interfere with erectile function. Anxiety and depression may also develop as a consequence of impotence.

Fortunately, impotence is usually treatable. A thorough evaluation starting with a history and physical exam is needed to help diagnose the underlying cause. Once the cause of impotence is determined, treatment can be tailored to target that cause and any other contributing factors. Treatments used for impotence may include medications, vacuum devices, surgery, and psychotherapy.

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in September 2003, Levitra became the second in a new wave of medications to revolutionize the treatment of impotence in America and around the world.
Levitra made its debut on the U.S. market more than five years after the introduction of Viagra, the first of the so-called PDE5 inhibitors to become available. In the years since Levitra’s introduction, three other similar drugs have come to market. Generic Levitra USA contains Vardenafil as its active ingredient. Take the drug by mouth in 15 minutes before sexual activity on an empty stomach. The duration of action is 8-10 hours.
