I have tried Viagra and Cialis both have failed. A pump does give an erection but, it goes down when the vacuum is removed.
I recently discussed this with my Urologist and she wrote a prescription for Muse. We will try it shortly and I will report back one way or another.
Interesting and yes please let us know how it goes.
How does this medication work? What will it do for me?
Alprostadil belongs to a family of medications known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins like alprostadil cause increased blood flow to certain areas of the body by causing the blood vessels in the area to widen. This medication is used to treat erectile dysfunction by causing increased blood flow to the penis in particular.
The goal of this medication is to achieve erections that last from 30 minutes or up to one hour. Alprostadil relaxes the smooth muscle of the penis, allowing more blood to flow into the penis to produce an erection. It can produce an erection in about
5 to 10 minutes, but this varies from person to person.
This medication may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of this medication may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of this medication may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here. Well guys I am back to report that Muse 250, 500 and 1000mg all failed to give me the slightest erection. I am going to go back to the Urologist and see what can be done. I am seriously thinking about
Trimix, just not sure I can give myself a needle.
I do find it frustrating and disappointing all at the same time. I do find that this seems to be an almost taboo subject with some people and or they just do not want to admit to ED problems ever. I will report back once again. Still have my sense of humour and a wonderful caring wife standing beside me.
