This is a powerful medicine to treat erectile dysfunctions. It works only if there is sexual stimulation. Sexual arousal releases nitric oxide from the nerves' endings of the cavernous bodies of the penis and activates guanylate cyclase enzyme. Guanylate cyclase in its turn is responsible for production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). Due to cGMP the blood vessels supplying the penis with blood widen and relax. Levitra prevents phosphodiesterase-5 enzyme from destroying cGMP and in this way helps to support blood flow to the penis.
