Reviews for Alprostadil

Hank · Taken for 1 to 6 months April 24, 2020

Edex (alprostadil): “I’m 62 years old type 2 diabetic and low testosterone. I have not had positive experience using Edex. It doesn’t work for me and pain is all it gives. I have tried dosages of 10, 20, and 40. Same results just penis pain for about 5 hours.”

Edex (alprostadil): “I tried Edex twice with no results. I got better results with Caverjet, but it hasn't been available. Both times I got a little sting when I used it, but I was use to that from the Caverjet. With Edex 20mcg not working and Caverject not available, I'm stuck (no pun intended). Viagra stopped working about 1 year ago.”

Muse (alprostadil): “I found Muse to be a very expensive medicine.”

Kyle March 17, 2020

Muse (alprostadil): “The first time I tried Muse (1000mcg), I took the foil pouch from refrigerator and placed it on the counter for 15 minutes. After unwrapping the applicator, and while standing, I lubricated the applicator with K-Y and held my penis upright. While pulling my foreskin back to expose my urethra, I inserted the applicator into the shaft. As the applicator was traveling thru the head, it felt warm and expanded. After inserting the rest of the way and then pressing the button, I could feel a sharp warming feeling, and I could feel the sensation of the suppository traveling downward toward the base. I did not roll my penis as instructed, but I located the absorbing suppository in my urethra and gently massaged until I could feel most of the absorption at the lower half of my shaft. My erection proceeded from there very slowly and gave me a warm/tingly sensation but no urethral burning. My penis erection was rigid to penetrate, but not as hard as one of my better erections.”

Caverject Impulse (alprostadil): “I went to a clinic and after discussion I had an injection. AMAZING result. I now use CAVERJECT Impulse on a regular basis. It's magic. BTW I'm 77 and I use the 20 mg unit. Erection lasts up to three hours no pain. ”

Edex (alprostadil): “I've used Edex three times now and have had mixed results. I think my dose is not enough, I currently take 20 mcg I probably need to take more. The injections work but I need to have my dose adjusted by the doctor. There is penile pain after the shot for a couple hours but not enough to get me to stop using it.”

Edex (alprostadil): “I have been using Edex for 20 months after a Da Vinci prostatectomy. Works perfectly. Started with a dose of about 7, 2 months after the operation but found it to be not enough and so my Doc gave me the 20 mg syringes. Tried 15 and that worked fine for a while before becoming painful particularly during penetration. Dose reduction helped matters and today 20 months later 5 gives the same results, presumably because nerve endings have healed and linked since the operation. A great drug, that for me only wears off after 4 hours which is a bit problematic when my wife wants some action in the morning. Only 2 misfires both times when injecting standing up. Lying down I find easier and more comfortable. If the drug usage is painful it is probably because you are overdosing - anyway that is my experience.”

“I have fought gradual neurogenic erectile dysfunction as a result of being diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis 20 years ago. Being incredibly stubborn has helped me find creative solutions to keep the equipment running at top speed until recently... Alprostadil is incredibly effective for me at 15mcg, and couldn't be simpler to inject. Creating a 110% erection for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, makes for a happy household and a great cardio workout. This 54 year old highly recommends that you get over your fear of needles and get busy living!”

Caverject (alprostadil): “I have used 20 MCG of caverject but not good. I am suffering from venous leak ,arterial insufficiency. I tried Trimix 10 MCG but not sufficient. Also I fear of priapism.”

Muse (alprostadil): “Been struggling to get hold of this drug via prescription for nearly a year. I found 1000mg quite effective but it is no use if I can't get hold of it anywhere...... Chemists and Pharmacy2U say there is a 'production problem'. Manufacturers are also vague about production when I enquired. I am in the UK.”

Muse (alprostadil): “Started out with 250 it worked great but the second time not as well moved up to 500 mg still not as good as the first time with the 250 Mg, for the 1000, but my mate doesn't like knowing I use anything she feels I'm not interested but Muse's the only thing working for me years ago. Yohibe work great for me but I think I overdid it.”

“At age 72, I had a TURP procedure that solved frequent urination but left me with a worse case of ED. Chemical therapy worked less than ideal. Now using aprostadil 100% of time and well pleased. Erection became slightly curved which took some adjustment to allow full entry for my wife, and there is slight pain, but far outweighs the benefit. One drawback is I must purchase 5 vials at a time and 3-4 injections per vial and shelf life is too short, even when freezing unopened vial.”

Muse (alprostadil): “After hit or miss experiences with Viagra I tried 250 mg muse and the results are stunning. 5 minutes and notice immediate effects......10 minutes later about 80% erect with zero stimulation. After 20 minutes ready to go. I did notice slight pain (not to the uncomfortable stage) with erection but at 66 years old, it works like nothing else and after ejaculation,about 50% erect and with modest stimulation from partner good to go. Takes about 90 to 120 minutes before wearing off. Works with no viagra like effects (headache) works while drinking. It's a 10 with me.”
