Hi
Is anyone on here doing the Trimix Injections more than twice a week? If so, have they had any issues?
 
It's taken awhile but I have discovered the best dose for me which is 8 cc. The pharmacy I use, gave me prefilled syringes with 25 cc's and I get five a month under Medco. So I can now use one syringe for a week and a half, or go to 3 times a week.
 
Thanks

We are always trying to get the right dosage.  I am not familiar with pharmacy pre-filled syringes.  Check with your pharmacist and doctor to confirm that their is no problem "reusing" a syringe.  Everything I read warns against a second use of the same needle.

Check it out to make sure you are not putting your health in danger.  Let us know what the experts say and the specific system you are using.  good luck...

I dunno, my urologist has said to use trimix 2x/wk only to prevent scarring. I have noticed over the 4 months of doing trimix that I have developed a mild case of Peyronie's Disease, i.e. bent penis syndrome. It's not bad now, but I sure wouldn't want to increase the risk of it getting worse by injecting more than 2x/wk, every other side. There must be something wrong with me, I'm just not that horny as you guys are, and I am 52! I wish the heck that I could get by just with viagra, calias, or levitra and forget about these injection. My "penile rehabilitation" ends in 2 months and then I'm going to take a big blue pill and hope I don't need these injections anymore,            Prostate CA survivor,

Actually I don't re-use the same needle. I got extra needles from one of the on-line vendors and use a clean needle every time. Also use the alcohol pads all the time to prevent infection.

Hey HB,

I'm wondering what your Trimix mixture is because 8 cc at a time would blow me through the roof. I use .04 cc per shot with a .5 cc diabetic syringe and a 31 gauge 5/16 inch needle. My doc started me with .1 cc and it was way too much. Lots of pain and lasted way too long. After lots of experimenting, I take 50 mg Viagra, wait an hour or so and do a little self stimulating then shoot the .04 cc. No pain and it lasts about an hour. Also, I have shot as many as 4 times per week and have no problems with Pierones. I think its because I use so little Trimix. Just my opinion...

The script reads 5ML Triple Mix 20:30:1. And sorry, the syringes are 0.25 cc/ml. So I'm injecting 0.08 cc per shot. The needles are the same size as yours and I have no pain.

I am using .025cc and injecting twice a week with Cialis. It works OK, but I hate the injections. I can't tell anything different relative to Peyronies. I personally have very little Libido - it all seems to be too much hassle - in fact I am only messing with it with the hope of returning to a more normal condition some day. I am wondering if others are experiencing the same thing, or maybe my testesterone is low?
