Reviews for Alprostadil to treat Erectile Dysfunction

Sort by:

Muse (alprostadil): "Tried muse and was disappointed. Very easy to apply. It caused some thickening in my penis but not hard at all. Left me with a feeling of discomfort in the shaft of my penis for about 4 hours. Have used a pump in the past with good results, guess that I will stick with this, Have tried Viagra and Cialis in the past with poor results. Great thing with the pump, a once only outlay and it works every time"

Muse (alprostadil): "Applying was easy into urethra. 5-10 minutes you feel a slight burning in penis. But a good type burning. You can feel feel the blood entering the penis and stays there with a little rubbing. Only side effects are slight burning and aching. Lasts for me 2 hours. I am healthy 70 year old retired physical education teacher who looks 55 So much better than the ED pills without side effects"

Muse (alprostadil): "Works somewhat, but not stiff enough for vaginal penetration. Haven't tried while standing though. Fairly strong penile aching with 1-2 hr. persistent erection afterwards are not a plus. I've had somewhat better results using a vacuum pump and retainer ring. The best thing so far was "Trimix" intracavernosal injection - a good hard erection, no pain - but the last batch was not particularly effective, and I don't know if the compounding pharmacy used dated materials, or my response is declining with age. Viagara and Cialis do nothing for me."

"The alprostadil on its own is insufficient. For me a ring at the base of the penis is necessary to make the erection stronger and longer lasting. Afterwards there is an aching in the groin area."

Muse (alprostadil): "I’ve used Muse for about 5 years and I love it! My erections last 2 to 4 hours. My penis is rock hard. No other medication has given me the results I get with Muse."

Edex (alprostadil): "I had stage 3 prostate cancer a prostatectomy in August 2014 which resulted in severe erectile dysfunction. After a couple of attempts, I was able to inject correctly and restore my sex life. I tried every kind of oral drug without avail and basically thought my days of intimacy were gone. Edex is a miracle drug!"

Caverject (alprostadil): "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 caverject for over 10 years. It's the best thing I have found for ED. I haven't really found any side effects that are negative for me other than the bruising on the injection site. I do alternate where I inject each time. The only negative experience I had was the initial injection at the doctor's office. Evidently the doctor used too much and I ended up with priapism and in the hospital emergency room. The ambulance ride wasn't too embarrassing at all but the emergency room female nurse was very embarrassing. Her comment about fixing the guy's 'arm' I found very disturbing. Did not appreciate that at all. The emergency room staff I guess thought it was a joke but for me as the patient it wasn't a joke. Have tried the pump for ED and have tried Muse but not much success. Really like using caverject."

"Fabulous stuff. I'm 71 with no prostate and total surgical nerve destruction. Unaided erections are nearly impossible. But one MUSE injector capsule and my johnson is harder than stale bread for up to two hours. There is slight discomfort but nothing serious. I don't recall the firmness of my youthful erections, but MUSE is easily providing erection on demand. Orgasm is severely delayed because of nerve destruction. But simply having erections again after 9 years without is a miracle."

Muse (alprostadil): "I've tried this around 8 times with limited success. Application is easy enough and what effect it had was within 10 min or so. I got a fairly soft erection that lasted about 40 minutes. It seemed to work better standing going to down to almost no effect if I lay on my back. I noticed quite an ache in the penis for a couple of hours."

Edex (alprostadil): "Look I won't hid the fact that it doesn't work like when I was young. Diabetes or the lack of control has me. ED Pills worked for awhile but stopped. I forget the name of the next stuff I had to insert which was good but didn't feel right. As I am taking insulin the use of needle was not a problem and when I saw how fast the results were I was thrilled!!! This is not to be used everyday or to make up for past opportunities. Yes, the length or time of hardness may outweigh your stamina but MAN! It feels good to be able to sexually make her happy again."

"What a disappointment Muse was. Without my hypertension meds everything works find. Maybe I will just quit taking them. I am not married, 63, and have tried with several women all to no effect. They are not shy in expressing their disappointment or they just disappear. Muse started to work but did not get there and leaves me sore, just like Viagra."

Caverject (alprostadil): "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): "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): "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): "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."

"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): "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): "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): "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): "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. "
