Alprostadil is a treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) that may provide an erection that is strong enough for most men who try it to have sex. In adults, alprostadil is used for erectile dysfunction resulting from neurogenic, vasculogenic, psychogenic, or a mix of causes. Trimix is an injectable medicine used for erectile dysfunction. Caverject is an injectable drug indicated to treat erectile dysfunction.
Oral drugs, including Viagra, are often the first course of treatment for men with erectile dysfunction. Ceratine drugs, such as alprostadil, papaverine, and phentolamine, may be given by injection into the sides or base of the penis. Alprostadil is sometimes used with other tests as well for diagnosing ED. To check for the appropriateness of a treatment, first-time users of Caverject Vials may be prescribed 10 micrograms of injection, but advised only to use a quarter (2.5 micrograms), provided that they do not have any pre-existing conditions.
Your health care professional should demonstrate to you how to prepare and inject Caverject correctly before giving you your first injection of CAVERJECT. Change the exact location and the side of your penis where you inject CAVERJECT every time you use it. CAVERJECT is intended to be used 1 time only, and must be properly disposed after each use. Read this patient information before starting CAVERJECT and every time you get a refill.
Ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist if you have questions about using your medicine. The amount of your medication to take depends on the strength of the medication. The number of doses that you take each day, the amount of time you are allowed between doses, and how long you take the medication all depend on the medical problem you are using the medication for.
The calculations used take advantage of standard dosages for the individual medicines. Across prescribed medications for diabetes, average affordability was estimated for both originator brands and lowest-cost generic equivalents. After starting to use Alprostadil at home, your healthcare provider can slowly increase or reduce the dosage.
