What is MUSE?
Muse containing the active ingredient alprostadil belongs to a class of medications called prostaglandin vasodilators. The medication works by relaxing the muscles and blood vessels to help blood flow to the penis and restricting the blood from leaving. Retaining blood in the penis can help a man achieve and maintain an erection and treat erectile dysfunction (impotence).
How is MUSE used?
Muse should only be inserted into the urethra using the special applicator as directed by a doctor. The medication should be used 5 to 15 minutes prior to sexual activity and the drug will last for approximately 30 to 60 minutes. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. The maximum recommended dosage in a 24 hour period is 2 doses.
Patients using Muse may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Penis, testicle or groin pain
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Back pain
- Irregular heartbeat
- Burning sensation in the urethra
- Erection lasting more than 4 hours
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
Using an alprostadil transurethral pellet improperly could cause damage to the urethra.
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.
MUSE is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
