Caverject is an injection used for erectile dysfunction including weak erections or impotence. It is usually used if oral medications for erectile dysfunction have not worked or have caused side affects which means you are unable to comfortably or safely continue them.
Caverject contains alprostadil which is similar to the natural substance in your body called prostaglandin E1. It widens blood vessels so that blood can flow into your penis more easily. This makes it easier for you to have an erection.
If you urologist recommends this treatment and you would like to proceed, we will arrange for you to see our nurse specialist who will instruct you on the technique and make sure that you are comfortable with it before trying it for yourself at home.
