Brief Answer:
Side effects: Orgasm delayed; not absent

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

There are no documented cases reported about a complete absence of ejaculation/climax, due to levitra; but one of the less common side effects is an abnormal or possible delay in ejaculation.

If your orgasm is held back completely, I would urge you to visit your prescribing doctor at the earliest. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications sir.

Take care and god bless.

Would help to cut dose; ie take 1/2 tablet?

Brief Answer:
Dose reduction can be tried; better to substitute

Detailed Answer:
Hello once again sir.

It might help in reducing the effect or make it occur less often, by reducing the dose; but as long as your body continue to experience the same reaction due to the medication, you will continue to experience the held back orgasms; but it is worth a shot to try to reduce the dosage first.

In my opinion, most effective results would be achieved if we find a substitute for levitra. Please discuss both possibilities with your prescribing doctor sir.

I hope I have provided you with information that you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications.

Best wishes.
