Alprostadil is a drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (erectile dysfunction), available in Australian pharmacies for decades. Alprostadil has several distinctive features that make it different from any other drug for the erectile function recovery.

The main difference of Alprostadil from other medications is its release form.

  • Virtually all drugs for the erectile dysfunction treatment are produced in the form of tablets or capsules for oral use.

Alprostadil is the only drug that is produced in the form of:

1. Intracavernous injections (administered in the cavernous tissue).
2. Intraurethral cream or suppositories (introduced into the urethra).

The unusual release form is both an advantage and disadvantage of Alprostadil.


Because Alprostadil injected directly into the penis, it acts locally and helps achieve an erection in just 5 minutes after use.

Another Alprostadil advantage is that it starts working even without penis stimulation and sexual foreplay.


The main drawback of Alprostadil lies in the fact that the maximum duration of its effect is about 60-70 minutes.

Furthermore, Alprostadil can be used not more than three times a week. Therefore, men who were prescribed Alprostadil, can not plan the daily sexual activity.

Side effects can be included into the list of Alprostadil disadvantages. Regular injections administered in the cavernous tissue, or cream/suppository introduction into the urethra can cause pain/discomfort into the penis. These adverse reactions make many men refuse to use Alprostadil at an early stage of treatment.

Because of several serious flaws, Alprostadil is prescribed only when men are contraindicated to use such oral medications, as Sildenafil, Vardenafil, Avanafil, or Tadalafil.

Conventional oral tablets and capsules for the erectile dysfunction treatment are safer, easier and much more convenient to administer. Therefore, when men complain of weak or absent erections, doctors recommend starting treatment with the use of oral erectile dysfunction medications.


If a man can not take pills for the erectile dysfunction treatment, doctor has to make sure that the man does not have contraindications to Alprostadil, before he prescribes this drug.

The full list of contraindications to Alprostadil use is listed in the leaflet.

If you plan to start the erectile dysfunction treatment, read the leaflet and get reliable information about Alprostadil before you discuss your erection problems with a doctor.

If you have any questions about the erectile dysfunction treatment after reading the leaflet, ask your doctor or seek qualified pharmacist advice.If you have been prescribed Alprostadil, you can buy it in the city pharmacy networks or on the online pharmacies.

If you have no experience of intraurethral/intracavernous treatment of erectile dysfunction, your doctor will instruct you on how to inject Alprostadil.

Before issuing a prescription for Alprostadil, the doctor must teach his patient to make injections to himself or to introduce the drug into the urethra.Therefore, the first doses of Alprostadil are administered into the doctor’s office.

  • After the selection of the optimal Alprostadil dose, doctor may prescribe one or more doses of the drug.

The Australian pharmacies offer packages that contain:

Up to 6 doses of injectable Alprostadil.

Men who use this drug for a long-term erectile dysfunction treatment, should consult with their doctor every 3 months (or more often). If you plan to buy Alprostadil online without a prescription, and never used injection/cream for erectile dysfunction recovery, ask all your questions about Alprostadil to the online pharmacy pharmacist.
