When nothing else worked, this has been a godsend. I started with 10mg and had a full erection for 2 hours which was very uncomfortable. Reducing the dose has cut that down to about an hour and much less discomfort. It is quite amazing and enjoyable to use. Getting used to giving myself the shot has been helped by my wife's participation. As a side effect, I seem to be not at my best mentally for several hours. My mind tends to drift off. Drinking lots of water clears it out of my system faster.

I have purchased the auto injection tool which make self injection a snap, I at 30 units and think I may be to high a dose, my erections tend to last for 2/3 hours, the only problem I seem to have is a hard time reaching a climax. But overall this stuff is just the best.

To those who are having problems, the medication is no good after expiration date, not mixed properly, or not stored proplerly. If you are not getting an erection, check supply dates, then increase dosage. If your erection is lasting to long, you can take a sudafed, a hot bath, and also, go for a brisk walk for about 30 minutes, and it will subside. Inject at a 45 degree angle staying away from the top of the penis, the side of the penis, and any blood vessels that are visible. Injecting the penis is not difficult, just take your time.

I"ve had diabetes for over 40 yrs. This has been the only medication that can give me a good erection.Adjustments in dosage are very important. Start low and increase gradually if needed.Some discomfort during injection and sometimes I've gotten no results, I think that had to do with the injection site.I have been using the 20mg. and now my pharmacist tells me that the only availiable strength is now 10 mg. When properly used with the right dosage, it's great.

i have used this for a few months now. ive had 2 dissapointing injections. wrong spot and other just not there!! but it works for me in 10 min. th injection the first time my wive helped. nervous! after that i dont think about the needle or pain,which is me. i stay at .50 it gets me 45min worth sometimes. full cc and my penis is hard for over 2 hours. and im ready for bed!! i get ill. so adjust accordingly. ive got a little high blood and a lot of anxiety so i went to my urologist as a last resort. pills work off and on herbs sucked!! and ineeded my sex life back!! i take caverject off and on cause ican a errection sometimes.i hope i bounce back. my sex life was steady and health for 10 years in my marriage. but sucked up the pride i suppose. bottom line it works for me but its not perfect every time and have a mate thats patient etc!! thank you.

Did not work at all. I had better results with Prostiglandin(spelling), which had to stay in fridge. Caverject does not. Do not know why it does not have to stay in fridge.

The results have varied from excellent to almost non-existent. The shortage of the impulse kit has been disappointing; however, I have adapted well to the mixing and self-injection with supplied syringes.

Good response erection lasting 30 mins on 20mcg. Tried it with 5 mg levitra 1hr before injection as these medications act at different areas of the erection pathway and had better response time and erection wise. If you are not getting the response you want from mono therapy ask your doctor about combination protocols. Combination therapy is going to be used more commonly in the future for poor responders.

The injection itself is traumatic and then when I still do not get an erection it is very disappointing.

Comment from: Bobino, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: May 31

I have only had 4 injections so far, 3 worked fine, with the 4th I had no results. The room was dark, and I don't think I injected the needle far enough - seems to me it's a judgement call? The needle should go in about 1/2 the length of the needle? Also, my MD didn't mention the likelihood of pain - a kind of ache in penis that seems to get less with more use and smaller dose (I'm down to 5mcg). All in all I'm happy with the product. It seems that my erection is shorter but thicker on the needle than originally. I'd also like to hear if anybody gives a 1/2 dose, then on a later day gives the remaining dose.

very painful penis for up to 4 hours

Comment from: JOSEY, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years Published: January 07

Works great but sooo expensive. Limits activity due to high cost. Anyone know of a way to get a better price?

Comment from: unhappy, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 10+ years (Patient) Published: February 19

I have been using this treatment since 1997 and his has worked extremely well for me until recently when the last 6 injection did not work at all. In fact it caused a painful swelling around the injection site and no erection . the site was also very tender and sore with extensive bruising. contacting the manufacturer did not elicit a satisfactory response to my problem. the doctors also did not seem very concerned. In short, Caverject has stopped working for me and left me in limbo regarding my problem. all other medications failed miserable to produce any erection.

I used to purchase Caverject in boxes of 6 vials and would mix my own amount that was needed. The cost of doing that went from $100 for the six bottles to over $580 for the same amount. Now I use the inpulse injection and have a difficult time not only injecting it but having the ability to have the proper amount to have an eriction.
