My doctor prescribed Caverject in a kit form. When I arrived at my pharmacy to pick it up, I was advised the kit was no longer available. Instead I was given 2 viles of the active ingredient in powder form, and a clear liquid that must be mixed with the powder along with 12 insulin syringes. I was also advised by the pharmacist that after I mixed the ingredients the portion not used must be discarded in 24 hours.  Since I am still at the point of determining what a suitable dose should be, I was instructed to begin with a .5ml injection, it would appear I only have two chances to get it right before my supply is exhausted for the month. I would hate for .5ml to be successful and have to discard the remaining portion. Am I missing something? 

 

Have any of you successfully stored this mixture beyond 24 hours, if so what were your results?

I used the powder form of Caverject for a while. I can say that my experience was that the liquid , when refrigerated, will last much longer than what they tell you. I used it for up to 3 months. Also, I'd reconsider starting with .5ml, if that's actually what they told you. Is the powder 20mcg or 40mcg strength? What is the dilution ratio of the water to the powder? If I remember right, I added 1 ml water, but later started using 3ml water to cut the strength so it wasn't so potent. Makes a big difference which, as one is twice as strong as the other. In either case, I would start the first time with .1ml aka 10 units on the insulin syringe or .10cc. The Caverject is some strong stuff and you don't want your first experience to be a 4 hour erection and a visit to the ER for reduction. If you got the 40mcg strength and use .5ml injection, that's a really potent dose to take. Also, some people won't experience it, but don't be surprised if you experience aching and some amount of pain after you have injected. Caverject does that to most guys. It will be up to you to decide how much you are willing to experience to have an erection. If you don't want to continue with it, there is also Trimix and Bimix to use.

If you are using Caverject for the first time, there's some prep work to do. Get some of the true Sudafed, not the stuff they sell as a replacement now. You'll have to ask for it behind the counter. This is to be used if you have an erection lasting longer than 4 ours. At the 3 hour mark, take 2 of them to hopefully start the ending process. As I said, expect some aching, so you won't be caught by surprise. When you are done using the erection, leave it alone. Do not handle, stimulate or anything, as doing so will bring it back to full raging strenght for quite some time afterwards. Good luck and good luck... tongue

Thanks James,
 
I have the 20mcg strength viles and I was instructed to add 1ml of the supplied liquid. I will take your advice and reduce the amount of my first injection. After refrigeration would you allow the liquid to reach room temperature before injection or would you inject it cold?

I hold the filled syringe in my closed hand for a couple minutes and allow my body heat to warm it. That does the trick.

You may have read it, but here's the link to a good instruction of the process, along with some tips to maximize effectiveness. Applies to Caverject , Trimix or Bimix equally.

When using Bimix, I carried the prepared syringe in my shirt pocket for 15 min or so to allow the fluid to reach body temperature. I don't suggest a trouser pocket as it is all too easy to accidentally push the plunger and inject into the syringe cap. cry

This was just my preference. You may prefer the cold rush, so I suggest try it both ways.

I need to make a correction. The initial dose is suppose to be 5mcg with a maximum of 20 mcg.

My initial dose of the 20mcg strength Caverject that was tested in the Dr.s office was 3 units. That did the trik for 1 hr. after mixing the drug you do need to keep it cool. When moving to the new script that strength was 40mcg. Doc advised that I cut the injection dose is half that is 1.25 units. Very successful. I have not ache or pain with this drug. The only issue is that my insurance does not cover and it is very expensive.
