Levitra is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor that works by helping to increase blood flow into the penis and relax muscles during sexual stimulation. This helps men to maintain and achieve an erection. Also known as Vardenafil, it was co-marketed by GlaxoSmithKline, Schering-Plough and Bayer Pharmaceuticals under brand name Levitra.
