We all know what a hateful and insidious disease lies in wait for many men. And this is erectile dysfunction. However, it’s possible and necessary to combat it. And one of the effective ways to cure ED is penile injection therapy. I’ve experienced such a treatment. Now I’ll tell you in detail what this therapy implies.
Efficacy of Penile Injections
Nevertheless, the so-called intracavernousal injections are now definitely one of the best methods to treat impotence, regardless of its causes. And though it may seem surprising, this method is quite widespread.
Moreover, the erection occurs irrespective of the sexual partner attractiveness. Thanks to this peculiarity, the penile injections advantageously differ from the other existing ED treatment methods.
Alprostadil for ED Injections
There are several medications used for the erectile dysfunction injections. Two the most well-known drugs are Edex (Alprostadil for Injection) and Caverject. Alprostadil is the active ingredient of these drugs. Alprostadil is identical to natural prostaglandin E1.
Other Medications for Penile Injections
The other drugs for injection therapy are papaverine, phentolamine, and atropine. There are different combinations of these drugs. It’s possible to purchase them by prescription at the pharmacies. The list of injection mixtures includes bimix (papaverine plus phentolamine), trimix<(bimix plus Alprostadil), and quadmix (trimix plus atropine).
Penile Injection Therapy for ED: Side Effects
Furthermore, pain is also the most widespread reason for refusal of injection therapy. As for other ED injection side effects, they include a prolonged erection called priapism. Finally, fibrosis of the cavernous bodies is the late complication of the intracavernousal pharmacotherapy.
Penile Self-Injections for Erectile Dysfunction
Self-injection therapy can be recommended for most patients with erectile dysfunction of organic origin. However, it’s necessary to remember that a practice for the patients to self-inject the ED medications is suitable only for those men who have regular sexual partners and are ready to follow all the doctor’s recommendations. But the patients with physical disabilities, impaired vision or severe obesity cannot adhere to penile self-administration procedure correctly. In these cases, it’s likely that a partner can help them.
Penile Injection Cost
One dose of Alprostadil which you buy as Caverject or Edex cost much more than one dose of the injection mixture, such as trimix and bimix. That is, the use of combined drugs can reduce the total cost of injection therapy for porn induced ED.
Besides, these medications are much cheaper than the most famous best ED pills, such as natural Viagra, Levitra or Cialis. In this case, you don’t overpay for the most advertised brands and at the same time you boost your sexual potency greatly. However, don’t forget that not all insurance companies cover the ed injection cost. So, contact your insurance provider to check whether you can count on free penile injections.
