Vardif (Vardenafil Oral Film) – Product Information
Vardif (Vardenafil Oral Film) is an orally disintegrating strip solution for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). Vardenafil Oral Strips, which belong to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors are used to treat erectile dysfunction, (impotence). This medical condition occurs when a man cannot get, or maintain, a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
The advantage of orally disintegrating strips is that they provide the convenience of a liquid dose while maintaining the dosage accuracy of a solid dose. The oral films are designed to dissolve upon contact with a wet surface, such as the tongue, within a few seconds, which means that the patient can take the medicine without drinking water or chewing. Vardenafil oral disintegrating film or strip employs a water dissolving polymer which allows the dosage form to quickly hydrate by saliva, adhere to mucosa, and disintegrates in less than 10 seconds. The oral strip then dissolves and releases the medicine for oromucosal absorption when placed on the tongue or oral cavity.
Vardenafil Oral Strips are rapidly absorbed and hence start providing the medical effect within 15 minutes. Erection can be achieved quickly after proper sexual stimulation. The effect lasts for upto 4 hours after taking the dose. Vardif oral strips are manufactured by Alpha-Pharma Healthcare in the strengths of 20 mg of Vardenafil. We also have in stock Vilitra (Vardenafil Tablets) which is another medication to treat the same indications.
