The drug from the pharmacological group of PDE5 inhibitors Vardenafil is highly effective in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, while the risk of side effects from taking it is minimized. The advantages of this drug include the fact that it practically does not interact with fatty foods and alcoholic beverages.

All of them are highly effective selective inhibitors of phosphodiesterase and have a similar mechanism of action, which consists in facilitating the process of nitric oxide release, which leads to relaxation of the muscles of the penis and the occurrence of erection.
Upon completion of intercourse, the blocking effect of the drug on PDE5 enzymes is suspended, and the penis returns to a relaxed state. The use of the drug significantly reduces the time required for recovery after ejaculation, while sexual intercourse becomes more prolonged and emotionally intense due to the fact that the active blood flow to the penis, caused by the action of the drug, enhances its sensitivity.
