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."

Edex (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I was having trouble getting an erection for a couple years. I tried all the pills through my urologist. We talked about the injection and I really had to come to grips with injecting myself. I finally decided to try it and the effects were amazing. My girl almost left me because I was unable to be intimate with her. My ejaculations were also premature. The EDEX made me very hard and gave me amazing stamina as well. I finally heard her moan out my name again while we were making love again, finally. I love this product, it saved my relationship. The cost is way cheaper then the pills and it works way better. The vial I get has tons of dosages. I wish it wouldn't expire so soon."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "A little discomfort at 1st. Allowed more blood flow. Was hard for maybe 2 min then was like a valve turned on and it just drained away. 500 mcg version. Was a little more discomfort during play, really on the fence with this, will try a few more times, diabetic with 2 back surgery's. Last surgery took a lot of it away."

Caverject (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "This medication is not that great, if you can achieve good results on Viagra, Levitra or Cialis, any of these three drugs is a much better option. Biggest complaint about caverject is that after injecting this medication, it literally feels like there is a burning feeling, it is very uncomfortable, and significantly reduces any chance of pleasure during sexual intimacy. As the drug wears off, it feels like someone elbowed you in the groin. If it is your only option, then it maybe be better than nothing, but definitely has its drawbacks."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "I tried Caverject. First test dose 5 mcg, not much response lasted about 10 minutes. Tried 10 mcg, got about 50% erection, but not enough for penetration, tried 20 mcg same result. My provider said to try 40, 60 and then 80 mcg. Haven't yet tried 40. I went to a Urologist who prescribed Trimix Worked ok, that was the liquid. The papaverine was 30mcg. Because I'm going on a trip I found a powdered form of Trimix online. Urologist ordered 0.5/10/0.5 which seems to work as well of the above liquid dose. But about 6 months ago I started on clomid, first 25mg M-F, testosterone 750, up from 450 but LH and FSH doubled. Now on 25mg MWF. I now have nocturnal erections, from the clomid. I'm hopeful that I can stop the injections soon."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Me and wife (in our 50's) tried it for the first time and great results. Second time not as good. We will keep trying. Believe we need to take it out of refrigerator and let it warm up a bit might help, I don't know. My diabetes and wife fibromyalgia (or how ever you spell it). We will keep on trying"

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I have tried just about every erectile dysfunction remedy available over the last few years none of which did much for me. My erections just were not strong enough to facilitate good sex for myself nor my wife and I was loosing any sensation. My urologist suggested I try MUSE and I did. But only a couple of times. The feeling I got was like being kicked in the groin. I thought the first time was possibly only a fluke for some reason but I was WRONG! The second time was just as bad! I have NEVER felt anything like the aching and discomfort I experienced possibly outside of being kicked in the groin. And my erection was just as weak as ever and my penis was so painful sex would have been impossible anyway. You can HAVE this stuff."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "I am not your typical user! Did Muse at least 50 times. This I know. Every erection is always different, but ALWAYS BETTER for that day with Muse. Sure there might be pain in your penis, but look at the color of it. Bright purple rite,thats because there is more blood in their than even in your youth! Did 5 mins a day on an elliptical machine reaching 15mins after a month. Did a Muse 1000mcg. and had a 4 hour porn star performance. Could have hit it with a board, only an ice cold shower brought it down!"

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..."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "Used it 8 times now and very succuesful 6 times. The 2 times it didn't work was my fault because I missed the correct place to inject I.e. The vein mass."
