I'm getting somewhat satisfactory results ( about an hour ) from .40 TriMix. However, given our habits (foreplay,etc.), 90 minutes would be optimal. My uro nurse says it's no problem to increase the dosage to .50 or more, but I want to go slow and be conservative given some of the horror stories I have read about.

She claims she has patients on "much higher doses" with no problem!

I would appreciate it if anyone would care to share their dosage levels and related experiences.

I just started that, 30 initial test dose lasted 2 hours! Yet to try my "1 hour" dose, 40 units or whatever it is. I'll get back after Saturday.

DW,

 I have used Trimix for over a year now, I am 19 months post op. I started with .20 and worked my way up the progression ladder until I reached .50; this seemed to be the “sweet spot” for me. However, as time progressed I found that I needed less and less to achieve the desired results. I am now using .15 to .20 with very good results. If you’re not having trouble with .40 it’s likely that you will not have issues with increasing to .50. Of course, I’m not a doctor; I can only share my experiences with this. Another thing that will get better with time is your technique, and your ability to inject yourself. There was a learning curve for me and it probably took me longer than most people to learn the technique that worked best for me. Trimix has been a real blessing to me. It has boosted my confidence level and helped me deal with one of the many side effects of this disease.

I'm 2.5 months post-op and have a fair amount of feeling in the head of my penis and with proper stimulation I can achieve orgasm. However you can only do so much with a mini me. My doc here in Cincinnati suggested I try the injections. are there any pain issues with them either in giving them or post injections? On ED med but no results. My leakage is minimal.

Thanks, Lennybob, I'll move to .50 and see how it works.

Pumper24-FWIW my advice is to start injections immediately. I fooled around with the pump, oral meds, Muse, etc. for 4 years to no avail. Subsequent reading from ED experts makes me wish I had started the injections right away.

I was a huge baby, I hate needles, but it is well worth it. I have benefited from all the technique advice on this board. I have used the needle directly and with an auto injector, both work fine. The auto injector helps if you're squeamish.

Pumper,

I echo what DW says about not waiting. I too thought the needles would be awful. Not a big deal at all, just takes a little practice and you will be a pro. The results are quick too, less than 5 minutes for me and the results are well worth going through the learning curve. If I can do this, anyone can. I am the biggest baby about needles you will ever meet. A 516” insulin needle works best for me; I find them to be less intimidating and a little more user friendly for me. Good luck and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
