Reviews for Caverject to treat 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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"I have been using Caverjet for ten years. It works great with no negative side effects. It has changed my life. VA will provide at little cost. Whatever you have to pay it is worth every penny."

"Prostrate completely removed at age 50, erection nerves were cut as well. Caverject injection most reliable to achieve results. Started with 20 mcg strength but moved to 40 mcg strength bottle of dry power to get more servings per bottle. 40 mcg is diluted with 200 cc sterile water and provides 10 events a 20 cc increments. Results usually last about an hour but firmness is dimishing with age. 15 years experience using caverject. I mix myself. I am now 65."

"When used correctly it works well within the 60 to 90 minute time for satisfactory and excellent results. Quick injections and within 10 minutes, you are ready."
