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 Impulse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Allows me to have an erection and have sex. I swap the needle in the package for a 31g insulin needle. Slides in without having to jab with no discomfort. The impulse device is good but I find that I would like a finer control over the dose instead of the 5MCG units. I have no recognised side effects."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Worked fantastically. I have tried Caverject since and it worked ok but had a semi that lasted about 3 hours and the injection site was painful. I've also tried the new Vitaros but found it useless. MUSE though.......the erection drug of the gods!"

For Erectile Dysfunction: "My partner used the drug after which I experienced side effects of extreme burning sensation irritation redness it felt like cuts but it was due to the side effects other medication when injected into the male the medication mix with sperm he ejaculate into the woman. It burns and it irritates the woman inside and outside, its extremely painful and causing damage to the vaginal area. Has the company started doing research into something that would neutralize that particular side effect that the partners may encounter, because it's extremely painful to the vaginal area."

Muse (alprostadil) for Erectile Dysfunction: "Used 1000 was great first and second time. A litter burning at the pens head. But had erections in 10 to 15 minutes. Works best when you stand during sex. Or are posted in a upright position."

For Erectile Dysfunction: "I have been using alprostadil for fifteen years. It will give me an erection in fifteen minutes The 1000 meg dosage will last for 2 to 3hours and the 500 meg for one hour. Both retard and reduce orgasm but leave me feeling " satisfied" It is unfortunate that medical plans severely limit the number of dosages they will pay for. It amounts to big business regulating my sex like. Not a happy scenario."

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."
