Which works faster and lasts longer, Viagra or Levitra?

Short Answer: This is an issue of some controversy. The makers of Levitra tout Levitra's speed as a strong point,  though the makers of Viagra have published a study that Viagra can work just as quickly. As a general rule, they both take from 15 minutes to an hour to kick in, and the effect lasts for three to four hours.

Long Answer: One of Levitra's main claims to fame is that it is supposed to work faster than Viagra. The idea being that a faster-acting drug allows for more romantic spontaneity.

Conventional wisdom has been that Viagra takes 30 minutes to an hour to kick-in. However, Pfizer released a study in December 2002 that showed that "Results showed that within 14 minutes of taking Viagra, 35 percent of men achieved at least one erection that resulted in successful sexual intercourse. A majority of men (51 percent) achieved this response within 20 minutes." So, for many men, Viagra too can work in less than 30 minutes.

An important point with Viagra is that it works fastest on an empty stomach; Levitra, however, is said to be less sensitive to food or alcohol intake. That may be one reason why for some men Levitra works somewhat faster. Here is a quote from some research on this issue:

In a separate randomized, double-blind study, men with mild to severe ED received a four-week supply of Levitra 20 mg or placebo and were asked to start sexual activity immediately after dosing. Results showed that significantly more men taking Levitra 20 mg experienced an erection adequate for successful completion of intercourse as early as 16 minutes after dosing compared with men taking placebo (34 per cent versus 24 per cent, respectively).

Both drugs last about as long, up to four hours, though some people report residual effects up to a full day later. A competing drug, Cialis, has been nicknamed the "weekender" because it lasts much longer, up to two or three days.
