Levitra is used for treating erectile dysfunction (ED). It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor. Levitra is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor. Levitra works by helping to increase blood flow into the penis during sexual stimulation. This helps you to achieve and maintain an erection.
