Hi James,
 
In response to your question, my hubby has recently started using Caverject.  Our doctor, on the surgeon's instruction, prescribes 4 x 20 mcgr kits per month and, as things are different in the UK to the US thought I'd add the charges, for this we have to pay the standard prescription charge of £6.80.  He also prescribes 8 x 20 mcgr tablets of Cialis per month again, for the standard prescription charge stated above.  
 
Best wishes to all for the New Year.

Thanks, Little Jem

Surely she and I aren't the only ones reporting?

I am currently using Caverject.  I experimented with 10mcg, 15mcg and 20mcg injections, and found that the 15mcg worked the best.(The syringe is pre filled and adjustable)  However, I still have significant discomfort every time.  My doctor gave me enough samples to last months.  I am now at the end of those samples and found that the usual Rx price is about $30 per injection. Each kit contains two prefilled syringes 

During my next appointment I will be requesting a Rx for Bimix.  If my urologist does not agree i will probably consult another physician.

The Caverject gives me a usable erection everytime.  However I feel some discomfort during intercourse.  I still do not have a very good orgasm.  I hope that will improve in the future.  I am at the point when my urologist said things should be getting better.  They are not.

have been regular user - lots of pain the first time, then less each time.  I never made any adjustment - .20cc's every time.  The only pain now is in my wallet-  I'm picking up trimix in an hour.  My concern is needle size.  The caverject comes with 33G - 1/2 inch needle.  I anticipate that the needles furnished with the - mix will be larger like a insulin needle 26-28 gage. Does anyone know the needle size
