I have moved ahead to trying the injections for ED but not 100% sure on the procedure.I thought I heard of a video of someone self injecting themselves either on here or Frank talk.Does anyone know of a link to one? Have had the med for about 3 weeks now and mustering up the guts to try tomorrow night hopefully.I just hope it's not another road block but trying to remain positive I can do this. yeah

It's really a piece of cake after the first time, take it slow and you will be surprised at what it will do for you and your wife, congratulations on moving forward.

You will never look back and wonder why you didn't get started sooner.

Let us know how it goes.

Cheers,

OK well not a good first time-it took some mustering to get enough courage.I told my wife I could inject anyone but myself.Then she coaxed me and said I was a strong person and had accomplished so many other things that were so much worse so I finally injected.After 20 minutes I realized the dosage was not right-very little firmness.So back to my urologist for another dosage.Going to go have beer now-this sucks.Thank you all for encouragement it really means a lot.

You're looking for the courage to do it....so was I...the result told me "why did I wait?".....go for it and go for it again, well worth the act in itself.......
Apparently peace, that glorious moment, was when everyone was standing around reloading.

Regardless of what people tell you, move very slowly with increased doses, lest you go from nothing to ER victim. I did .10, which was so-so, .11 which was almost ok for about 45 minutes, and .13, which had me on the road to the ER at 4 hours+. The doc had said it was ok to do .10, .15, then .20. I can't imagine what would have happened at .20.
 
I see two factors there - one is quantity, the other is stress/anxiety from the process of shoving a needle in the poor guy. Once you figure it out, and it becomes less of an issue, your stress is no longer fighting the med.

Thank you all I need to think this all over for now...think about going back to my urologist for increased dosage but will let u know how that goes once I do.I am trying not to be a pessimist and hoping it will work better next try with proper dosage.

New guy here! I have been doing injections now for over 15 years, I believe diabetes and the Military is the cause of my problems. I have trimix#2 for years and just recently switched to super trimix. I have never really had a problem with the injections,can't hardly feel them with 30 gauge needles. I am up .5 in dosage use to be .3. I have had bladder cancer twice and have been cancer free for two years now. Good luck to all I appreciate all the advice.

Wife of Trimix user. First inj was remarkable. Lowest dose recommended. Kept it in the freezer as instructed. Used it again at the lowest dosage did nothing. gave himself another dose of the lowest dosage (about 1/2 hour later) with no response. why would that happen? sad

KK,

Mine comes in two 5ml vials. Once I take a vial out of the freezer, it stays in the fridge, but not back to the freezer. It should be good for at least a month in the fridge. My pharmacist says 6 months in the freezer max.

What could go wrong? Two things I've had happen:
- the solution separated, and needed to be shaken well to mix it back up
- the needle went into solid tissue rather than the chambers. Did you try the "pull back the plunger a bit" trick to be sure you got some blood?

No he did not try "the trick". Will try that next time. Also, we watched a video since posting and have received more info. Shake well and hit the chambers
