Reviews for Caverject

JayHBee · September 15, 2011

For Erectile Dysfunction "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."

For Erectile Dysfunction "Starting taking Caverject 20mg around 3-4 years ago. Worked great when I first started using it and was down to 1/4 of a injection to get an erection within 5 mins. that would last for at least 4 hours. Now I inject the full dose and when it works it works the same as before but more often then not it do not work at all. Do anyone else have this problem?"

For Erectile Dysfunction "Wonderful medicine. It gives me rock hard erection lasting one to one and a half hours. No need to worry about changing positions, moving and losing erection. Caverject locks in the erection so you can focus on the sexual experience. A+"

For Erectile Dysfunction "Started on Caverject 10mcg. Moved to 20mcg big improvements. But still not totally firm. So moved to 30 mcg . The issue is I have to inject 10mcg and 20mcg separately . Anyone know if I can just inject the one dosage of both together . Hate needles"

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."

For Erectile Dysfunction "Only been using for about 4 months... I'm injecting 20mcg. Does anyone else experience burning pain after about 10 mins up until the penis loses the erection. I've had erection for more than 4hrs. But the burning sensation spoils it for me and can't ejaculated either. There's no pain on injection so anybody new don't be worried about injecting."

For Erectile Dysfunction "Hi Guys, I started using Caverject some 8 months ago. I started with 7.5ugm dose. It gave results in about 3 to 5 minutes while massaging the injection site for 90 seconds to distribute the active component. I have had to increase the dose rate over this 8 month period from 7.5ugm to now 15ugm. It appears to have lost its potency and less rigid erections for about 45 minutes whereas before it for 90 minutes and hard. This has been noticed by my partner. Are other users finding this issue? Here in Australia you can only get Caverject up to 20ugm."

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."

Rb1979 · September 24, 2017

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 "Excellent... it must be used properly. Needle must be inserted almost to the hilt in the appropriate spot as advised in the accompanying literature. If not much less effective and burning sensation. Doing this , small amounts work !"

Hard Up · Taken for 10 years or more · January 18, 2022

For Erectile Dysfunction "I have been using Caverject 20mg for up on 20 years now and find it to be an excellent medicine. Fortunately, I don't have any of the side effects as highlighted on previous posts. I have used it on average once per week. My only issue with Caverject is that it's dogged with supply issues and it has not been available in my pharmacy since Oct 2021. Perhaps Pfizer can give an update on when supply resumes."

Bald Guy · February 20, 2018

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."

For Erectile Dysfunction "Caverject ruined my life. I loved it when I needed it , but after less than a dozen times, it ruined my penis, I now have Peyriones. My penis is bent , disfigured and shortened, it use to be nice looking, now it looks like road kill. I'm in such a dark space as over a 2/3 of length and girth has gone, I now am receiving shockwave treatment to no avail. I'm at the point of hopelessness and complete breakdown."

For Erectile Dysfunction "Being overweight caused the absence of love making for the past few years due to ED issues. I started using caverject 20mlin the past couple of months (approx 16 times) and its difficult to see what I'm doing during injection time and using a mirror as a guide is something I'm not good at and never have been. Why the medication isnt working could be that the injections are missing their target. Either I'm going to deep or not deep enough I feel. How does one know when you are in the sweet spot that it's supposed to land in?"

For Erectile Dysfunction "It’s been 5 years since I started using it 20mg now and then. At the beginning I needed less than 1/4 to get 4 hours erection, now whole injection barely work. Wondering if anxiety and depression affect its performance or its performance has been causing me anxiety and a depression. Anyway, too much life hassle to maintain a sexual life, I’m losing interest in sex cos it has become too complicated."

For Erectile Dysfunction "I used 3 times, 1st didn't inject, 2nd some effect and third a little better. I started with 5 dose. Does penis size determine dose amount? New user. Can not rate yet."
