Caverject Impulse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "after prostate removal I used the caverjecty impulse. This worked a treat!"

For Erectile Dysfunction: "At age 72, I had a TURP procedure that solved frequent urination but left me with a worse case of ED. Chemical therapy worked less than ideal. Now using aprostadil 100% of time and well pleased. Erection became slightly curved which took some adjustment to allow full entry for my wife, and there is slight pain, but far outweighs the benefit. One drawback is I must purchase 5 vials at a time and 3-4 injections per vial and shelf life is too short, even when freezing unopened vial."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "After hit or miss experiences with Viagra I tried 250 mg muse and the results are stunning. 5 minutes and notice immediate effects......10 minutes later about 80% erect with zero stimulation. After 20 minutes ready to go. I did notice slight pain (not to the uncomfortable stage) with erection but at 66 years old, it works like nothing else and after ejaculation,about 50% erect and with modest stimulation from partner good to go. Takes about 90 to 120 minutes before wearing off. Works with no viagra like effects (headache) works while drinking. It's a 10 with me."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "While using Muse I experienced a little discomfort. The applicator seems that it is still full of medicine. I followed all of the directions that came with the product. I noticed that my penis started to harden up a little then quit. I wonder what I am doing wrong"

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I had prostate surgery in 2009 and had used Muse for ten years. I had tried everything from injections, pills, pumps and now medical Muse. The key is to determine what works for you. When I first began to use this medication I used a penis pump. The pump comes with different size rings for your penis. I pumped the penis up, then remove it out of the pump and I insert the Muse into the head of the penis and re-pump. After 8 mins or so I slide the ring off the pump on to the shaft or base of the penis. The penis will stay hard and the ring will help keep the blood inside the penis. Best position is standing over the bed while your partner lay on the bed. Side effects for me are; a little discomfort in the groin area (but hell, it's worth it) also swelling of veins in the lower left leg. Women don't care how you get it hard, as long as you get it hard. I honestly had no complain. PS, use your pump ever day to mimic a hard-on that we use to get every morning.. " keep that thang alive "!"

For Erectile Dysfunction: "10 units if it just going to be me, and I use 15-20 units if wife and I have intercourse. Love it !"

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "A miracle drug that changed my life... I tried all the pills and felt that I was at the end of the road and just accept I have ED... I tried Edex shot injections and it was a life changer as far as intimacy with my wife. It has been amazing. I highly recommend to anyone with this problem."

Mike · Taken for 6 months to 1 year January 12, 2019

For Erectile Dysfunction: "I have been using the caverjact injections for 8 months and it started out great after my prostate cancer surgery. So the past few months when I inject myself my penis curves and it's difficult to have sex does anybody know I'm doing wrong or is it making my penis curve?"

Jazz December 21, 2018

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I am in very good shape at 70 yrs old. I have used Muse 5 times. One time worked out as planned and the two other times it let me down. Another time I had an erection for 4 hrs. So in short it seems undependable and I get an uneasy feeling to try it again. Plus it takes too long to get it from the drug store. Is there a production issue..?"

I'm Happy Now · Taken for 6 months to 1 year December 11, 2018

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I talked to my Doctor about the use of Muse, I'm glad I did !!! I was thinking about using the injection method... I'm so glad I didn't.. Muse is so so easy to use.. And The best part is that it REALLY WORK"S."

Big guy · Taken for 1 to 2 years November 25, 2018

For Erectile Dysfunction: "Now in my mid 60s. Always had trouble with ED. Pills helped when I was younger, then very hit and miss. Now use a Caverject. Comes in 20mcg. I mix it and use about half, or 10mcg. Sometimes I use the rest the next day. Do not store in too cool a place. The medicine is freeze dried powder that is neutralized permanently by cold. I like the mix yourself version because I travel and don't need to refrigerate. Inject in side of penis, it is possible to miss the spot if you are careless."

JOE · Taken for less than 1 month November 9, 2018

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Tried muse 500 mg, the cost is insane and had absolutely no effect, tried 4 different occasions, all I got was a sore penis and an empty wallet, 50mg viagra worked a little better, for a fraction the cost"

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Tried muse and was disappointed. Very easy to apply. It caused some thickening in my penis but not hard at all. Left me with a feeling of discomfort in the shaft of my penis for about 4 hours. Have used a pump in the past with good results, guess that I will stick with this, Have tried Viagra and Cialis in the past with poor results. Great thing with the pump, a once only outlay and it works every time"

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Applying was easy into urethra. 5-10 minutes you feel a slight burning in penis. But a good type burning. You can feel feel the blood entering the penis and stays there with a little rubbing. Only side effects are slight burning and aching. Lasts for me 2 hours. I am healthy 70 year old retired physical education teacher who looks 55 So much better than the ED pills without side effects"

Post-prostatectomy guy · Taken for 5 to 10 years August 17, 2018

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Works somewhat, but not stiff enough for vaginal penetration. Haven't tried while standing though. Fairly strong penile aching with 1-2 hr. persistent erection afterwards are not a plus. I've had somewhat better results using a vacuum pump and retainer ring. The best thing so far was "Trimix" intracavernosal injection - a good hard erection, no pain - but the last batch was not particularly effective, and I don't know if the compounding pharmacy used dated materials, or my response is declining with age. Viagara and Cialis do nothing for me."

Puddy August 6, 2018

For Erectile Dysfunction: "The alprostadil on its own is insufficient. For me a ring at the base of the penis is necessary to make the erection stronger and longer lasting. Afterwards there is an aching in the groin area."

UpAllNight · Taken for 2 to 5 years July 27, 2018

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I’ve used Muse for about 5 years and I love it! My erections last 2 to 4 hours. My penis is rock hard. No other medication has given me the results I get with Muse."

ED Desperation · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 13, 2018

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I had stage 3 prostate cancer a prostatectomy in August 2014 which resulted in severe erectile dysfunction. After a couple of attempts, I was able to inject correctly and restore my sex life. I tried every kind of oral drug without avail and basically thought my days of intimacy were gone. Edex is a miracle drug!"

Caverject (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I am a male in my fifties and have been using caverject for the last 15 to 20 years. Works great very little side effects for me and really enjoy it. I hope it always works because I do not want a prosthesis. A lot of men cringe at the thought of putting a needle in your penis but it hurts very little. I've been using it for so long that now when I think about giving myself an injection I immediately start getting an erection."

Russel the WONDER muscle · Taken for 10 years or more March 22, 2018

For Erectile Dysfunction: "I have been using caverject for over 10 years. It's the best thing I have found for ED. I haven't really found any side effects that are negative for me other than the bruising on the injection site. I do alternate where I inject each time. The only negative experience I had was the initial injection at the doctor's office. Evidently the doctor used too much and I ended up with priapism and in the hospital emergency room. The ambulance ride wasn't too embarrassing at all but the emergency room female nurse was very embarrassing. Her comment about fixing the guy's 'arm' I found very disturbing. Did not appreciate that at all. The emergency room staff I guess thought it was a joke but for me as the patient it wasn't a joke. Have tried the pump for ED and have tried Muse but not much success. Really like using caverject."

Upnattem · Taken for 2 to 5 years March 8, 2018

For Erectile Dysfunction: "Fabulous stuff. I'm 71 with no prostate and total surgical nerve destruction. Unaided erections are nearly impossible. But one MUSE injector capsule and my johnson is harder than stale bread for up to two hours. There is slight discomfort but nothing serious. I don't recall the firmness of my youthful erections, but MUSE is easily providing erection on demand. Orgasm is severely delayed because of nerve destruction. But simply having erections again after 9 years without is a miracle."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I've tried this around 8 times with limited success. Application is easy enough and what effect it had was within 10 min or so. I got a fairly soft erection that lasted about 40 minutes. It seemed to work better standing going to down to almost no effect if I lay on my back. I noticed quite an ache in the penis for a couple of hours."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Look I won't hid the fact that it doesn't work like when I was young. Diabetes or the lack of control has me. ED Pills worked for awhile but stopped. I forget the name of the next stuff I had to insert which was good but didn't feel right. As I am taking insulin the use of needle was not a problem and when I saw how fast the results were I was thrilled!!! This is not to be used everyday or to make up for past opportunities. Yes, the length or time of hardness may outweigh your stamina but MAN! It feels good to be able to sexually make her happy again."

BadBadger · Taken for 1 to 6 months February 23, 2018

For Erectile Dysfunction: "What a disappointment Muse was. Without my hypertension meds everything works find. Maybe I will just quit taking them. I am not married, 63, and have tried with several women all to no effect. They are not shy in expressing their disappointment or they just disappear. Muse started to work but did not get there and leaves me sore, just like Viagra."

Bald Guy February 20, 2018

Caverject (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I have been using this since 1993 due to inability to get an erection after a car accident broke my hip and dislocated my leg, along with bad concussion. It worked quite well during the first 10 years or so. Now, due to age I am guessing, it is a "hit or miss" with the injections. As of Jan 1st, 2018 I am no longer able to find it in my state-the only pharmacy that mixed it has discontinued doing so due to the high cost (I also had it shipped via UPS since pharmacy is a couple of hrs away). What confuses me here is that the rx that works best for me had to always be kept cold until use, and I have received it sometimes thru the years where it says not to keep cold ( and that rx never worked). So-there evidently different formulas? And as for the scar-tissue statements-yes, I too have the scar tissue with the "hard" spots, but they have not caused any pain; curvature, etc-I can feel them when I get ready to inject, and just inject beside them."
