treetop, thanks for sharing that data. Let's see, that's $53.21 a ml./$5.32 per each .10cc or 10 unit dose for the Formula 9 versus ---say using our cost of $95 per 5ml, then 1ml costs is $19.00/$1.90 per .10cc or 10 unit dose. . Ours contain approx. 30 times the Papaverine, 10 times the Phentolamine, and the same amount Prostaglantin, less the Atropine. I am guessing a refill of yours would cost another $745, plus maybe more office visits, or such?
The Bimix, which is the same , less the Prostaglantin runs in the $55 per 5ml vial range. It usually will take about
1/3 more as the Trimix to be as effective.
Also, I would suggest trying the injection by itself, without the pills. Some research says that they are counter productive, since the pills act to
open up blood vessels and allow more flow and the injections act to close off veins to hold the blood in. Makes sense, in an odd sort of way. I do know that most guys doctors here tell them to not mix the two drugs. Some few are told to mix them, so I'd try it without, just to see what you get from it that way.
