Vardenafil Accord is a prescription drug used in erectile dysfunction. It is the generic version of the Bayer drug, Levitra.

Erectile dysfunction is a characterised by an inability to achieve or sustain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. It’s a common problem, thought to affect at least half of men over the age of 40; however, many younger men experience the condition too. Often the issue can resolve on its own after a short time, but in cases where symptoms persist, treatment may be able to help.
What causes erection problems?
There are several possible causes of erectile dysfunction (known also as impotence or ED). Psychological or emotional factors can often play a part, such as pressure to perform in a new relationship, feelings of stress or worry (which may not necessarily be connected to the act of sex itself), or depression. Lifestyle habits, for example smoking, alcohol consumption and not getting enough exercise, can induce symptoms as well.
In some cases, a health condition like high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes or may be the root cause. So, if you develop erectile dysfunction and find that symptoms persist, it’s a good idea to see a doctor about the issue, so that they can rule out any underlying condition that may be behind it.
When treating ED, a doctor may suggest making lifestyle changes to help tackle symptoms. This might include cutting down on alcohol intake, quitting smoking, or exercising more. However in some instances, these measures may not be enough, and prescription treatment may be necessary.
How does generic Vardenafil Accord work?
