Quote from Mark R. on Injection question for those with experience thread started by DanmanBob

I'm new to the group but not new to ED or injections BUT I have had Multiple Sclerosis for 20 years and I just celebrated my 53rd birthday recovering from Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy. So I have plenty of experience with ED. I used to use PGE1 and would dose from 2-5 ML (Yes, you are reading that correctly - there are no decimal points!). Doseage didn't seem to matter regarding performance and the higher dosages didn't work as frequently as the lower dosages. Pain ranged from none to very painful. I injected anywhere from near the base to near the tip and I alternated sides. As you can imagine, I tried to use as much area as possible to avoid scarring. about six months ago, my Doctor switched my to Trimix and I love it. I used .2 ML (Yes, there IS a decimal point on that number) and it worked great. Rock hard and zero pain. 

So the long answer to your question, at least from my experience, is that the dosage is just one part of the equation. The other parts are your overall health, stress level, fatigue, etc. on any given day. The one thing that has always puzzled/frustrated me is when I felt great, unstressed, well rested and horny and the PGE1 wouldn't work. I chalked it up to the MS and tried again in a day or two.
