Reviews for Edex to treat 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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"I have been using EDEX for 2 or 3 years. At first there was very little pain, but now the pain approaches severe. I am using the maximum dosage, and I do get an erection, but sometimes my erection peters out (pun intended), and also it has become more difficult to achieve an orgasm. I also use MUSE sometimes, and although it is not as effective as EDEX, it damn sure does not hurt as much as EDEX. I am 74 yrs. YOUNG!."

"I have type 2 diabetes and I have had 2 emergency discectomy's. I was having major erectile dysfunction issues. Long story short, went to doc. He gave me 'truth Serum" injection (my word for EDEX), because he had to measure both flaccid( no problem there) and erect, hence the "serum". Told me to go into waiting room. Not fully knowing what was about to happen, it felt like the incredible hulk had managed to get into my shorts. It was amazing. Not only was I alive, ALIVE!! I honestly felt 18 again ( 48 currently)."

"Viagra never worked. Cialis worked partially. I tried the Edex 20 mcg and was amazed at how well it works! I read the instructions two or three times to ensure I understood all. Took time to locate a good spot and avoiding the veins. I was surprised at how little pain there is with the needle (my biggest apprehension) and I did not get any bruising or discoloration at the injection site. Some minor aching, which maybe will go away with further use. Onset took about 4 minutes and full onset within 10-11 minutes. I would rate the erection at about 80%; I am going to try the 40 mcg. dosage, to see if I can attain closer to 95-100%. Many who post here do not discuss dosage levels? I am age 66. I wish I had tried this earlier!"

"I tried Edex for the first time last weekend. I was given the 10mcg and it did not do anything. I don't know who was more disappointed me or my wife. This weekend we will try a 20mcg."

"After having my prostrate removed, I could not get an erection. Viagra and Cialis did not work. The next step was injections, which the Dr. recommended Edex. The injection was painless and I had a great erection. I had an erection for 6 hours, which I have to tell you, it is not a pleasure, but after reducing the dose in half it's much better. I highly recommend Edex. The Dr. gave me an Edex card, which took care of the co-pay and ended up costing me nothing."

"My erection is as firm as it was when I was a teenager. It lasts 2.5 hours. It delays my ejaculation for quite sometime."

"Used Edex for the first time today. I'm 52. I have low testosterone (350), but no other chronic health issues. My erectile dysfunction is mostly psychological. Doctor gave me a few 20mcg samples. Decided to use a very small dose (about 0.25ml or about 5mcg) since it was my first use. Had a nice hard erection in about 3 minutes, and it lasted about 60 mins. Needle insertion was painless. Small bruise at the insertion site. No pain at all, until about 45 minutes into my erection when I started to have a dull pain in the shaft of my penis. I assume that was due to being erect for 60 mins for the first time in 20 years. Edex was easy to use, worked great for me. Try it !"

"Excellent results in the first try; removing years of disappointments. As a diabetic, the use of needles is not new but I was unsure of this location and possible errors. It was easy, accurate and without side effects."

"Tried it last night with great trepidation. I am generally a nervous guy about everything and had high apprehension about injecting myself, getting a 10 hour boner, etc. Happy to say that it was super easy to use. I got a 10Mcg kit and was afraid of a priapus so I injected 5mcg (which you can do). I carefully put pressure on the area I injected for a few minutes and got no bruising. I only got very slight burning that lasted 30 seconds and went away with the aforementioned gentle pressure. Got a wonderful erection that lasted about 2 hours. I was glad I didn't inject the whole ten mcgs! Didn't need to. I am 62 and I think most of my problem is psychological. Sometimes Viagra just won't work for."

"I use EDEX 40mg and take a 10 mg Levitra. I can sustain an erection easily for one hour. I hold off climax as long as possible. When I feel that I may lose my erection I hasten to a climax. Usually stays erect for a little while after climax. I am pretty satisfied with the product. No side effects from EDEX but have a heavy head from the Levitra. I am 75. "

"Sometimes causes a small bruise (pencil point size) to as large as 1 inch by 4 inches (twice). Must add, very infrequently bruised, as I've learned to be careful at the injection site. Been using 40mg Edex for about 6 years. Like it better than Caverject (5 years) for ease of injection and preparation. Twice had gotten bent needles, but called Edex, and the medication was replaced free through my provider. Sometimes use a "ring" with the medication. Gave a 9 instead of 10 because of bruising."

"The only thing keeping me from giving it a 10 is the price. At $25.00/injection it's a little much. I get the 20mcg and use 1/2 pre-shot.The pain is a lot less if you use insealant needles. It works for me every time."

"Tested today with the urologist. I'm a 38 year old diabetic in great shape actually but have erectile dysfunction and nothing seems to work. They prescribed a 20mcg of Edex. We tried it at 10mcg. Seems to work really well."

"The drug has been consistently effective for me at 20mcg. I find the provided injector is much more difficult to use for a low-pain injection than the one provided with 'Caverject'."

"Edex works well. I started with 20mg then 40mg. I found the 20mg is good. I did get it in the vein twice and boy what a Black and Blue Mark."
