I would probably agree that Trimix Gel will work as good (or not) as MUSE (but perhaps you could tolerate the 1000/300/100 gel better than 1000 mcg MUSE ? (plus it has the extra stuff in the formula for a bit more boost too).
That is a LOT of $$$$ (200) for crummy old MUSE, With insurance I get 6 500 mcg MUSE for about
(updated cost $45) -- or 4 at 1000mcg ($35).
Yeah I have tried with a ring. Is OK that way, but it introduces the SWIVEL JOINT back -- somewhat like the VED does -- which I want to get away from -- hence using the Gel or MUSE.
One thing I noticed about
MUSE or Gel is if I pump up in addition to using those, all goes pretty well until near peak hardness when you can get a real ache (like alpro ache). But when you back off the vacuum a bit it subsides, more pump, comes back etc. What this tells me is that the better the Alprostadil works in getting you hard (successful), the more you are gonna ache.
Last night I did try a 500 mcg MUSE (+ 20mg Levitra 1 hr before). That did pretty well .. fairly hard for an hour or two and not much ache. Also I had one of those rings-with-beads-inside and added it just below the head of penis (not at base). That kind of helped I think. For one thing it prevents any leakage/dripping. Might try that again. Since it has been about
a month since I used MUSE last, maybe I have progressed a little bit so it works better.
More experimenting is needed!
