Will caverject (alprostadil) conquer performance anxiety ed?

Will caverject (alprostadil) conquer performance anxiety ed?

Yes: Caverject is injected into the shaft of the penis and is designed to maintain erections and it works very well. It is usually second line to medications like viagra (sildenafil) or cialis. The first dose is usually administered by a doctor in the office to see how you respond and to demonstrate how it is used.

Is alprostadil cream available online?

Maybe but need rx: Alprostadil is a prescription only medication. The fda has not yet approved a cream version (vivus is studying vitaros) so you won't find it at your neighborhood cvs, target or walgreens. However, a compounding pharmacy might be able to make it for you as directed by a physician's prescription. I really wouldn't trust the online places that offer to sell it to you w/o doctor's visit/prescription. ...Read more
