What is Caverject Impulse Injection?
Caverject Impulse Injection containing the active ingredient alprostadil is considered a vasodilator type of medication. The injections are used by men to treat erectile dysfunction, the inability to get or keep an erection. The medication works by relaxing the muscles and blood vessels in the penis to improve blood flow and keep enough blood to achieve and maintain an erection.
How is Caverject Impulse Injection used?
Caverject Impulse Injection should be injected into the penis as directed by a doctor. The medication works within 5 to 20 minutes after the injection and the erection should last for approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy. The maximum usage for the drug is 3 times per week with at least 24 hours between uses.
Patients using Caverject Impulse Injection may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
