Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Yes, You can...
(You can take Levitra)

Fast heart rate, low blood pressure are known side effects and can occasionally occur.
Its use in combination with - nitrates or amiodarone – is absolutely contraindicated.

     The general dose is 10 mg. You start 2.5 mg and see.
     If there is no benefit and there are no untoward events, – step up to 5 mg next time.
     On the same principles, on subsequent occasion, 10 mg may be used.


Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
