What is alprostadil?

Alprostadil (brand names Caverject®, Edex®, Prostin VR®) belongs to a group of medicines called vasodilators. These drugs increase blood flow by expanding blood vessels.

This medicine is identical to a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps keep the blood vessels open, letting blood flow more easily. Alprostadil helps treat erectile dysfunction (ED) by increasing the blood flow to the penis, causing an erection.

Alprostadil injection should not be used as a sexual aid by men who do not have ED. If this medicine is not used properly, permanent damage to the penis and loss of the ability to have erections could result.

Alprostadil is also available as an intraurethral suppository. However, due to efficacy, cost, and side effects, it is not used often.

Alprostadil is a medicine that men take for ED (erectile dysfunction). It’s only available by prescription.

This drug makes the blood vessels expand. That boosts blood flow throughout the body, including the penis, so it helps men with ED have an erection.

You can get alprostadil injected directly into the penis. Or you can use it as suppository, placing it into the opening at the tip of the penis.

How Effective Is It?

The injectable form causes an erection firm enough for sex in more than 80% of men with erectile dysfunction regardless of their age or the cause of their ED.

The suppository form is not as effective. It produces an erection in about 30%-40% of men with ED.

How should alprostadil be used?

Several alprostadil products can be injected. The injection method for these products is the same. However, the ways of preparing the mixtures are different. Be sure you know which product you are using and that you fully understand the correct way to mix the injection.

Do not use alprostadil more often than your doctor has ordered, or in larger amounts. This could result in permanent damage to the penis.

Before drawing the medicine into the syringe, make sure you wash your hands with soap and water and set the bottles on a clean surface. You must also wipe the tops of the injection bottles with an alcohol swab. Do not wipe the needle with the alcohol swab.

What are the side effects of alprostadil?

Side effects with alprostadil are not common, but they do happen. Contact your doctor if any of the following symptoms become worse or do not go away:

  • Bleeding at the site of injection
  • Pain at the site of injection
  • Painful erection
  • Bruising or clotted blood in the area of the injection (usually caused by an incorrect injection)
