I haven't been on the forum in several months, but remember some discussion earlier this year about
experiences with Caverject vs. Bimix/Trimix. I've been taking 100 mg Viagra for several months, with the pump, with no results. Doc had me trial MUSE today--not an experience I want to repeat, and I let him know that. It didn't work (we started with the lowest dosage) but felt like a hammer to the crotch for several hours. Next step is injections. He says he starts with just Caverject, if that doesn't work moves to Bimix, then Trimix and even mentioned a Quadmix, but said he starts with the minimal medication and works up. Can anyone refresh my memory on experiences with the different injection drugs? Thanks.
