There are a number of treatments on the market for erectile dysfunction. At present, there is no one approach that works for all men. If you’ve tried oral medications and don’t experience much in the way of results, Trimix is an erectile dysfunction treatment option that you may want to try. Easy to administer and effective in a short amount of time, it may be the solution that you need. Here are some basics that you should know about this form of treatment.
What Is Trimix?
Trimix is a combination of three medications: alprostadil, papaverine, and phentolamine. Prepared in liquid form, the medication is delivered by way of injection. The liquid is prepared by compounding and is done at a local pharmacy. As with many types of injectable medications, you will need to refrigerate the compound.
How Long Before Intimacy Should I Inject Myself?
It’s generally recommended to administer the dose of Trimix at least five minutes before you are ready for intimacy. Many men find that performing the injection fifteen minutes prior to intercourse works well. You can expect the results to last anywhere from a half-hour to a few hours. As is true with any type of erectile dysfunction treatment, seek medical attention if you experience an erection that lasts for more than four hours.
How Often Can I Use It?
You can inject Trimix up to three times a week. Always use a fresh needle for the injection. It’s also a good idea to swab the injection site before and after administering the injection. Remember to keep the unused portion refrigerated in order to enjoy the best results. If you travel for any reason, invest in a container that will keep the compound cold until you reach your destination and can store it in a refrigerator.
How Does the Cost Compare to Oral Medications?
Cost is sometimes a factor when it comes to any type of erectile dysfunction treatment. The good news is that Trimix is among the more affordable options. In general, you can receive enough of the compound to last for three months at a time. On a per dosage basis, the compound is typically less than one-half the cost of a single dose of any of the currently popular oral medications.
