Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturer depending on the country of origin. Images are provided as a reference only, the received medicine may vary in packaging, color, pill shape, etc, from one batch to the next. For an item marked "generic" any quality brand may be sent, however you will always receive the active ingredients ordered in the strength(s) ordered.
Caverject Dual Chamber (alprostadil) is a fast-acting treatment for men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED).
This medication is administered by injection into the penis. While this may sound daunting, syringes are designed with extra-fine needles that the majority of men do not find bothersome.
Men who are disinclined to use injections may be interested in other formulations of this medication, including Vitaros, a topical cream applied to the penis, or Muse, a penile suppository. All of these rely on alprostadil and work in 5 to 10 minutes.
Caverject Dual Chamber does not require refrigeration or have any other special storage/handling instructions; keeping the medication at room temperature is fine.
How Alprostadil Works
Alprostadil is a vasodilator also known as prostaglandin E1 (PGE1), a naturally occurring substance in the body. Ultimately the medication expands blood vessels, improving blood flow. Administered directly to the penis it improves blood flow there, which enables an erection to from and be maintained long enough for intercourse.
Alprostadil is also used to treat certain congenital defects in newborns and to treat elements of peripheral artery disease. However, dosage is usually different and administration location is nearly always different in these cases; Caverject Dual Chamber should not be used to treat anything other than ED.
Using Caverject Dual Chamber
The dual chamber in this product refers to two chambers in the syringe; the medication in a powder and the solution mixed with it. Both are included in a single syringe; each pack of Caverject Dual Chamber includes two syringes.
Each syringe can administer several dosage strengths, the smallest being 2.5 mcg. Men who need a smaller dose will need to use regular Caverject powder.
Dosage is best determined by a doctor, and can range from 1.25 mcg to 60 mcg per dose. Average is 5 to 20 mcg. A doctor will also demonstrate how to use the dual-chamber syringe. Detailed syringe use instructions are also included with each product.
A syringe can be prepared---powder and solution mixed---up to 24 hours prior to use and stored at room temperature. After a dose is administered, any remaining prepared solution should be disposed of.
To administer a dose:
An erection should form 5 to 15 minutes after administration, and should last about an hour. Unlike most ED treatments, erections often form without stimulation and remain after ejaculation. If an erection remains after 4 hours, seek emergency medical treatment; this condition can cause damage.
Some other tips to ensure treatment is hassle-free:
Most men find Caverject Dual Chamber provides a fast, simple solution for ED and do not experience significant side effects.
Side effects do, unfortunately, sometimes happen even when care is taken to use the medication as directed. Side effects that warrant medical attention before continuing use of Caverject Dual Chamber include:
Side effects that warrant immediate medical attention include:
Long-term use of Caverject Dual Chamber can cause scarring and a bent erection. If this happens use of Caverject may need to end.
Caverject may also become less potent over time. If it stops producing results, speak with a doctor about alternative treatments.
