For Erectile Dysfunction: "A nurse showed how to inject with a small amount and I could feel it working. When I got I used the full amount and my life changed. The only problem I have with it is with my 65 yr old wife. She can't keep up with me and says I am much bigger now. I don't know about that but it makes me feel like I was 20 yrs old again. My sex life would be better than it has ever been if my wife had something like this drug she could use. But I understand where she is coming from so we just pace ourselves. This drug is a godsend for me life with out testicles and no libido is hell. I love this drug it works for me!!!"

For Erectile Dysfunction: "I'm 66, in good health except for high blood pressure, and have been using Edex for almost 4 years now at the lowest dosage. It works most of the time, giving a fast erection (in 5 minutes or less) and a reasonably long-lasting one. This isn't as effective (neither as hard nor as long-lasting) as the "cocktails" found at the various "men's medical clinics" you hear advertised on the radio, but if it's covered by insurance it's far less expensive. Sometimes there is a lingering pain in the penis for several hours afterwards with the alprostadil, but the results are worth it!"

For Erectile Dysfunction: "I was pretty frustrated with the pills. I tried Viagra and Levitra with minimal effects. My doctor suggested Alprostadil injection therapy. I was a little nervous especially with the thought of getting a shot into my penis but after reading up on it I mananged to get up enough nerve to give it a try. I must say the shot didnt hurt at all. Zero pain and only a little drop of blood from the injection site. Within 10 minutes I was fully erect and my erection lasted for 70 minutes. I didn't experience any side effects like with the pills. No headache, no flush mess in the face, no visual impairment, or heart burn. I am very pleased with the outcome and would recommend this course of treatment for men that have little success with the pills."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Wow.... Had Prostrate cancer and it was removed 13 months ago. Was still waiting for my erections to start but nothing. My doctor prescribed Viagra as well as using a pump. Viagra helped in getting the erection up but it would never stay. Would just as one would say peter out in a min. I also was prescribed some suppository things but the cost was out of this world. So next he had me try this EDEX. Wow, it works like all the above good ratings. Erection was up in under 10 min and lasted about 3 hours (great huh).... only problem was the pain. I was given the lowest amount... Guess its not for me. 10 was because it works, a 3 because of pain."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "This medicine works amazingly for me. Having had prostate cancer, none of the pills worked with any success. Switched to this and have had amazing success. The only issue I ever had was a blood pressure med conflicted with it and seemed to stop working . After consulting with uroligist he suggested that may be the issue. GP changed blood pressure med and it started working again. I use it roughly 3x per week and never have issues. I am 53 years old and my significant other is constantly remarking that men my age cannot perform like this on a consistent basis. Erection usually last 2 - 3 hours and I am able to perform multiple times in that time periold. Highly recommend."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "I have used 20 injections of alprostadil. The erections have been better than I expected. Most of the time my erection has lasted for 2 to 3 hours and I have been perfectly satisfied and happy with the results. A few times I had some pain but I have decreased the dose and it works fine now. I don't like to inject my penis but I must say the gain is worth the pain."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "Tried 3 times with 40 mcg dose, once in doctor office. Absolutely NO results, but really big pain and discomfort. Have lower back pain, testicular pain, injection site pain and overall serious discomfort. Have to take oral pain medication to relieve the seriousness of the pain, and will not use this. Will re-visit my urologist again and let him know the torture this is causing, and I have a very high pain threshold. "

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I have been using EDEX for 2 or 3 years. At first there was very little pain, but now the pain approaches severe. I am using the maximum dosage, and I do get an erection, but sometimes my erection peters out (pun intended), and also it has become more difficult to achieve an orgasm. I also use MUSE sometimes, and although it is not as effective as EDEX, it damn sure does not hurt as much as EDEX. I am 74 yrs. YOUNG!."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Tried it once by itself, very slight results after three minutes that lasted only about five minutes, and caused a lot of penile pain that lasted over an hour. Tried a second time after taking Cialis first as suggested by Urologist, and it was even less effective, very slight results that lasted less than 5 minutes."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I have type 2 diabetes and I have had 2 emergency discectomy's. I was having major erectile dysfunction issues. Long story short, went to doc. He gave me 'truth Serum" injection (my word for EDEX), because he had to measure both flaccid( no problem there) and erect, hence the "serum". Told me to go into waiting room. Not fully knowing what was about to happen, it felt like the incredible hulk had managed to get into my shorts. It was amazing. Not only was I alive, ALIVE!! I honestly felt 18 again ( 48 currently)."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Viagra never worked. Cialis worked partially. I tried the Edex 20 mcg and was amazed at how well it works! I read the instructions two or three times to ensure I understood all. Took time to locate a good spot and avoiding the veins. I was surprised at how little pain there is with the needle (my biggest apprehension) and I did not get any bruising or discoloration at the injection site. Some minor aching, which maybe will go away with further use. Onset took about 4 minutes and full onset within 10-11 minutes. I would rate the erection at about 80%; I am going to try the 40 mcg. dosage, to see if I can attain closer to 95-100%. Many who post here do not discuss dosage levels? I am age 66. I wish I had tried this earlier!"

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Tried this as an alternative to phosphodiesterase inhibitors (Levitra and such, just because I get some side effects from these and wanted to see if got better results for less side effects). Slightly awkward application, sticking a plastic stick down, though I rather like the sensation. Have to say it works REALLY well for me, a bit of penile pain in the area where the pellet is deposited in the urethra, but really quick onset of erection (no need for stimulation at all) and a really firm erection. 500mcg dose is good for me. Also keeps me hard for a good while after climax, so feel ready to go again after a bit of a breather!"

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "After having my prostrate removed, I could not get an erection. Viagra and Cialis did not work. The next step was injections, which the Dr. recommended Edex. The injection was painless and I had a great erection. I had an erection for 6 hours, which I have to tell you, it is not a pleasure, but after reducing the dose in half it's much better. I highly recommend Edex. The Dr. gave me an Edex card, which took care of the co-pay and ended up costing me nothing."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Used Edex for the first time today. I'm 52. I have low testosterone (350), but no other chronic health issues. My erectile dysfunction is mostly psychological. Doctor gave me a few 20mcg samples. Decided to use a very small dose (about 0.25ml or about 5mcg) since it was my first use. Had a nice hard erection in about 3 minutes, and it lasted about 60 mins. Needle insertion was painless. Small bruise at the insertion site. No pain at all, until about 45 minutes into my erection when I started to have a dull pain in the shaft of my penis. I assume that was due to being erect for 60 mins for the first time in 20 years. Edex was easy to use, worked great for me. Try it !"

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "If you are not using a condom, your partner may experience painful vaginal itching or burning. If your partner is pregnant, you should use a condom during sexual intercourse because this medicine has not been tested during human pregnancy. "
