“But I want it now…”

Fast, rather long-lasting results are more important for many men using anti-impotence treatments and Levitra, a new rival to Viagra, can work in just 10 minutes, researchers say.

The drug made by GlaxoSmithKline produced results in 10 minutes in some men and worked within 25 minutes for most participants in a study of 724 impotence sufferers in Europe and North America.

“It is a very, very fast acting drug,” said Professor Francesco Montorsi, a professor of urology at the Universita Vita Salute San Raffaele, in Milan Italy, lead author of the study.

“Ten minutes is very short. The drug is given by mouth and it takes time for absorption,” he added.

Montorsi, who will present his findings at the 7th Congress of the European Federation of Sexology in Brighton next week, said the drug was also well tolerated and safe.
