Is it safe for me to take Levitra if I have heart problems?
There are a few reasons why this question is one of the most frequently asked questions when ED pills like Levitra are in question and this is why an article like this is always welcome, explaining the dangers Levitra supposedly poses for people who suffer from certain heart problems. I would also like to dedicate this article to other people who need to be careful when taking Levitra.
First of all, I would like to explain why this has become such a big issue when ED pills are in question, including Levitra. Namely, the fact is that Levitra, like all FDA-approved ED medications affects the levels of certain enzymes in the human body. The main enzyme these medications affect is the PDE5, responsible for the state of the blood vessels leading the blood into the penis tissue. However, as none of these medications is exclusively affecting only the PDE5 enzyme, there are also effects on other blood vessels in the body. Also, you need to be aware of the fact that talks and fear mongering about the supposed adverse effects Levitra will have on the patient’s cardiovascular system are largely propagated by companies that manufacture natural alternatives to ED pills, as this is pretty much their only chance of getting any customers to switch to their products which simply cannot compare to ED pills when it comes to anything else.
However, no matter how much of this is the result of cheap advertising tricks by the aforementioned companies, it is true that you need to be careful if you consider taking Levitra in case you are suffering from certain heart problems. These heart problems will not necessarily prevent you from taking Levitra, in fact they are more likely not to, but it is a good idea to talk to your doctor and discuss taking Levitra with them. For example, if you have had recent cardiovascular events, such as congestive heart failure, strokes or heart attacks, your doctor needs to be made aware of this. This also goes for any cases of angina, Long QT syndrome, any arrhythmias or any heart diseases whatsoever. They will also want to know if you have either high or low blood pressure.
There are also some other conditions that will be of interest to your doctor if you are considering taking Levitra and these include stomach ulcers, seizure disorders such as epilepsy, any liver or kidney diseases, any vision or hearing issues, bleeding disorders, blood cell disorders, eye disorders like retinitis pigmentosa or any deformities of the penis, like in Peyronie’s disease. You will also need to tell them if you have been told not to have sexual intercourse due to any medical reason whatsoever. When you inform them about any of the aforementioned, your doctor might want to do some additional tests to make sure that you can safely take Levitra and to also monitor your progress.
