Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Followed all instruction to the letter. All I got was a bit of a burning sensation in my urethra and a bit of numbness over most of my penis. "

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I have used Edex for over 3 years. Very positive in that it almost never fails to give me a nice hard, durable erection within a few minutes with stimulation, maybe 2 "erection fails" in several hundred uses. The injections are painless and very easy to get used to. cost per dose is very small. Not so positive is that for about 2 years I have had a difficult time reaching orgasm and when I do it often is only after very hard, intense, prolonged stimulation, almost never through intercourse alone. Mr Urologist insists that the orgasm issue is all in my head, that the medication is giving me the erection as it is supposed to, but that there must be some other issues involved."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "After fighting rectal cancer for 2 years I lost the ability to get hard. My doctor prescribed 100mg Viagra which worked for a while and then it got harder to produce an erection. The doctor asked me if I thought I could stick a small needle into my penis. I told him I could and would if it would help me get an erection. I have been using Edex for over 2 years with mostly a good reaction to the drug. The only reason I gave it a rating of 9 instead of a 10 was every once in a while when sticking the needle in I would miss the sweet spot on my penis and my erection wouldn't happen or only last a short amount of time. I'm finding after 2 years of using Edex the needle has become harder to inject and more pain full. My wife loves the hardness."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "Works wonders for me! I purchase from outside the USA otherwise, you would go broke! My insurance does not cover it. The US drug companies should be ashamed of themselves! It has never failed me. viagra and cialis did not work at all. I get approx 24 shots from 1 vial I pay $155 US dollars for 2 vials. I think it costs like $85 dollars for 1 shot if you purchase in the USA. What a joke!"

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Creates only a soft erection; not enough for intercourse. I have mentally separated ejaculation from intercourse because what I primarily want is the sense of "oneness" with my mate. With a MUSE injection I feel a sort of pain, which also is felt in my ankles and lower legs. It's pretty useless for me. Does give a soft erection for a short time."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I was given the 40 mcg injections. Like other people posted I got up in about 5 minutes. But when it came to performance, I went soft after inserting into my girlfriend. This is a big disappointment to her & makes her feel unwanted. She is very close to leaving me because I can't be a man in bed."

Caverject Impulse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I had my prostate removed 13 months ago, and was advised by my Urologist and prostate nurse to commence a rehab program of 5mg Cialis daily and include a pump routine ( I do 6 x 5 minutes) one to two daily) which has almost returned my length and girth to square one. As I hadn't been achieving a erection adequate for penetration, my Urologist instructed my on injecting Caverject Impulse 10 mcg last Friday with great results. On Monday at home I self injected 10 mcg with no pain and stayed erect for 1 1/2 hours. Although I didn't; hit any small veins, it was a bit awkward finding the best spot, so this morning I decided to do a gentle pump, increasing the penis size and injected very easily. Increasing my dose to 15 mcg was a bit tight."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "At my urologists suggestion I used Edex today. 10 mg dose and injected the entire tube. I had a solid erection in about 5 minutes and it lasted for 3 hours. It went up much faster than it went down. So, it worked. Unfortunately it became quite painful, so much so that intercourse would not have been pleasureable. Doseage can vary from 1-40 mg so I will try again with a 2 or 3 mg dose. I had my prostate removed 2 years ago and haven't had a woody until today. I'm wondering if the pain is from the stretching of the tissues. Some indication online that there is less pain with increased use. Viagra and Cialis did not work and I had crazy muscle pain with the later. So this is my likely last option."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "Now been using for 2 months, 24 injections into treatment. I've found that if not careful with the injection site ,it can cause pain for up to an hour and a less than satisfactory result. HOWEVER, pay close attention and inject as instructed. If not deep enough it can be painful and cause bruising. I found that 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock and close to base of penis works flawlessly. I still praise this med. Works great!"

For Erectile Dysfunction: "Unbelievable....I tried thru my primary physician viag,cial , and with pump. Nothing was worth the end disappointment. Squeezing and pumping wasnt working. My physician refered me to a Urologist and After a consult he told me he had a med that would most likly pick me up (no pun intended). The injection was amazing. He performerm a test injection, very small needle, little pain ,5 minutes later I was blessing him like Jesus. I hadnt had an erection like that since my 20" s. Dont hesitate, a new chapter in your life is awaiting......I promise S.W FAIRHOPE,AL."

Caverject Impulse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Was in bad auto accident that broke my hip and had an adverse effect on the nerves in my groin area, this got worse with age causing ED...no help from pills, and then my Urologist prescribed Caverject.....Wow that was the answer ! I have used it at about nine times now - only had one failure to launch (it was probably an injection mistake made by me), but 8 Gold medal performances!...The dose I use is 15mcg and I last 1.5 up to 2 hours!!! My Lady friend is amazed and fully satisfied with the performance - so am I. At our age we have to take a short break before finishing up. The good part is that I stay erect even after climax..."

Edex Refill (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I've had ED for many years due to stressful marriage and hypertension, Cialis and other oral meds didn't do much for me and didn't last very long. Divorced wife and consulted urologist, he suggested Alprostadil 20 micrograms. 20 was too strong as erection lasted over 4 hours, he cut back dosage to 10 micrograms and I get erection which lasts about 2 hours, perfect for terrific sex with my girlfriend. I'm 75 and girl friend is 72, neither of us have ever had such a perfect intimate relationship. She massages my penis after the injection which increases our bonding. I was afraid to inject my penis at first but after a couple of times the anxiety went away. Wish it wasn't so expensive, would like to use more often."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "After nerve sparing prostate surgery I was prescribed several of he big named drugs but no satisfaction and to many side effects for me, my doctor then prescribed Muse (1000mg) a good erection was obtainable nothing like before the surgery but at least it works, as others have suggest standing up sure makes it work faster and last longer, suggest it be used well before expiry date and its extremely important that the application instructions be followed exactly."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "It's a 10 plus for me, lasted right at 2 hours and my wife loved it. All the other stuff really didn't do much of anything, also made it noticeably bigger."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Edex began to work this first time in about 5 minutes. I took 10 mg and it produced the best erection I could manage with a pump, with sildinafil, or any other way. Adding 10 mg more within 20 minutes improved the rigidity a bit, but the overall erection was probably at 80% of in my youth. I feel no burning, but I do feel what feels like a pressure in my prostate. I just got a TURP and still feel the effects of that surgery a bit, since it has been 6 weeks ago. This may just be what happens with my initial dose. If 20 mg doesn't work, I'll try doubling that. 20 mg would probably suffice for insertion during sex, but I doubt if if would feel good for me or her."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "My first injection at home: physician-provided dose of papaverine + 3 regitine with added 20 mcg of PGE1 mixture in amount of 30 cc was very painful and lasted over 3 hours until relieved with standard dose of Sudafed. The pain was intense at about 9 out of 10 with 10 being the highest. My penis felt like it was engorged beyond capacity, or like it was being forcefully bent while fully erect, although in reality the erection was only about at 70% and declining. While the erection was declining, the pain held constant. Health care professional recommended reducing to 10 or 15 cc dose. This had the same result in pain intensity but less stiffness and duration of erection. At about 35% stiffness, the pain stayed at 100% of original."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Tried Muse for the first time tonight and well not very impressed yet. It gave me the initial erection but did not last long at all not even an hour. I am on many meds for Diabetes though so I'm sure that played a part. I will try it again for sure though. Also I am only on the 250mcg dose. I would say it's a start though much better than what has been going on."

Caverject (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Have been using caverjet for six years now,at the begining it was great .injecting 20mg .however what the manufacture. Does,not tell you is each time you inject the needle causes scarring to the penis wall.after about five years I found it was taking longer to pee. I did not link the two together. However recently Visited a consultant and informed him of my condition.he then told me this can happen. So advise me to now take muse.not so effective as the injections."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "First couple of times took 20mg and worked great. It lasted about five hours without any side effects. Dropped down to 10mg and the last two experiences were terrible, had an erection for seven hours without going down, after sex it was extremely painful and wouldn't go down."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "I use Caverject on average 3 times a week as I have a younger partner. With an erection that lasts at least an hour it can satisfy her. I replaced the needles that come with the Impulse for finer shorter ones used on insulin pens 8mm x 31G. That length is quite adequate to get the medication where it has to go yet not long enough to stick into the urethra... You do have to make sure you massage your penis to disburse the medication or you may not get a result. I have no side effects and there is no pain during the injecting apart from a slight prick. To me it is the answer to my prayers."

Caverject (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "A little hesitated first two times injecting myself, but it is worth it. Had nerve spairing for bladder cancer, but after 2.5 years with no normal erection this saved the day."
