10mg, 20mg Troches
Vardenafil is a PDE5 inhibitor in the same class of drugs as sildenafil and tadalafil. When comparing drugs in this class, vardenafil is most closely related to sildenafil in its effects. However it differs in the activity of its metabolites and may have a decreased incidence of certain rare side effects. PDE5 inhibitors work by inhibiting the enzymes that break down cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which is essential in the chain of reactions that helps maintain an erection. We make vardenafil troches that dissolve in the mouth for a fast onset of action.
How to Take Vardenafil Troches
It is better to take vardenafil troches on an empty stomach (not right after dinner) and to avoid excessive alcohol use. Food and alcohol can interfere with absorption and efficacy. In most cases vardenafil should be taken about 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity. It will then be effective for about four to six hours and clear from the body rapidly. The most common starting dose for this drug is one 10mg lozenge taken as-needed before sexual activity. The dose can then be raised to 20mg depending on how effective this dose is and if there any side effects.
Compounding Vardenafil Troches
Commercially available vardenafil is manufactured in tablet form and marketed under the brand name Levitra. However this drug is not available commercially in the form of troches. Troches (pronounced trOh-key) are another word for lozenge. The troches we compound dissolve in the mouth, ensuring a fast onset of action. Many commercially available medications that could be made in lozenges are made only in tablets or capsules because of manufacturing, storage, and handling concerns. However a compounding pharmacy is able to make PDE5 inhibitors like vardenafil in the form of lozenges in dosages customized to your needs.
