What is Caverject Impulse Injection?
Caverject Impulse Injection is used by men to treat erectile dysfunction, the inability to get or keep an erection. The active ingredient alprostadil is considered a vasodilator type of medication. The medication works by relaxing the blood vessels and muscles in the penis to improve blood flow while keeping enough blood to achieve and maintain an erection.
How is Caverject Impulse Injection used?
Caverject Impulse Injection should only be injected into the penis as directed by a doctor. Apply the medication 5 to 20 minutes before sexual activity 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 recommended usage is 3 times per week while waiting at least 24 hours between uses.
Caverject Impulse injection may cause unwanted side effects such as:
- Prolonged erection that lasts 4 hours or longer
- Pain in penis
- Back pain
- Unusual discharge from penis or trouble urinating
- Lightheadedness, dizziness or fainting
- Slight pain, irritation or bleeding at injection site
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
Always dispose any needles and syringes in a puncture proof container.
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
