Common side effects of Levitra include: headache, flushing (warmth or redness in your face, neck, or chest), runny or stuffy nose, stomach upset, heartburn, dizziness, back pain, or nausea. In the rare event you have a painful or prolonged erection lasting 4 or more hours, stop using Levitra and get medical help right away. Tell your doctor if you have serious side effects including sudden vision loss; ringing in your ears, or sudden hearing loss; chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, general ill feeling; irregular heartbeat; swelling in your hands, ankles, or feet; shortness of breath; vision changes; lightheadedness, fainting; or seizures (convulsions).

Other possible side effects include headaches, dizziness, and pain in the stomach or lower back, if you experience any of these, contact your doctor.
