Caverject is an injectable drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED).
This drug should be administered only to those men, who have an allergic reaction to such tablets/capsules, as Sildenafil, Avanafil, Vardenafil, and Tadalafil.
Caverject has two important differences from the tablets for the treatment of ED. The most important difference is the effect duration.
Another important difference is the ease of use
You can take the tablet for the ED treatment within a few seconds
Caverject injection may take several minutes
Despite the short-term effect of Caverject drug and the disadvantages of its use, the injection treatment of ED is the only possible way to get an erection for some men.
Different Caverject doses can be used to recover the erectile function. An optimal dose should be chosen by your doctor.
- The first Caverject dose depends on the cause of the ED and varies from 1.5mkg to 2.5mkg. If a man does not achieve an erection after the administration of the low test dose, the second dose can be increased to 5mkg.
- The dose of Caverject should be increased until a man reaches an erection, sufficient for a successful start and completion of a sexual intercourse.
Results of Caverject studies show that most men manage to achieve and maintain an erection after using the average Caverject dose of 60mg.
Recommendations for use
Men who were prescribed Caverject should adhere to a few simple rules.
No more than 1 Caverject injection should be used within 24 hours.
No more than 3 injections of Caverject should be administered within 7 days.
If an erection lasts longer than 1 hour after a Caverject injection, the next dose should be reduced.
If you have any serious side effects, you should stop the injection treatment of erectile dysfunction.
The most frequent side effect of Caverject is local pain in the penis, caused by injection.
- Clinical studies have shown that penile pain occurs in about one in three men on Caverject.
- Only 3% of the total number of men that took part in trials on Caverject had to stop the injection therapy of the ED due to pain in the penis.
You can find the complete list of often and common side effects in the leaflet for Caverject. If you note serious side effects while using this drug, you can try replacing Caverject injection to another drug for the treatment of ED.
As an alternative to Caverject, doctor may recommend the use of drugs with the same ingredient. The active ingredient, used for the production of Caverject injectable solution, is Alprostadil. The same ingredient is included in the cream and suppositories to treat ED.
Alprostadil-based suppositories and cream work just like Caverject injection, but are introduced into the urethra, and not into the cavernous tissue.
International market offer more drugs that contain the active ingredient Alprostadil, including:
Despite the fact that Caverject and other Alprostadil-containing drugs do not cause drug dependence, they are marketed in the Australian pharmacies by prescription only.
If you already have obtained a prescription for Caverject injections, you can buy them at your local pharmacy. If you plan to buy Caverject online without a prescription, you must make sure that the injection ED treatment is not contraindicated to you, before you place your order.
