What is Caverject?

Caverject is an injectable treatment for erectile dysfunction. It can work well for men who’ve tried tablets before and found they haven’t worked. Men who can’t take tablets for a medical reason, such as an allergy, might also be able to use Caverject as an alternative. 

The drug works in a slightly different way to Viagra and other oral medications. Instead of using a PDE5 inhibitor, Caverject contains alprostadil which is a prostaglandin (or PGE1 for short). But the result is much the same: PGE1 dilates blood vessels, so blood can flow into the penis more easily. This helps you get and keep an erection that’s hard enough for sex. 

Who is Caverject for?

Caverject is intended for men who haven’t been successful at treating their ED symptoms with tablets. It’s also sometimes recommended for men who can’t take oral tablets for medical reasons. 

If you haven’t used tablets before and are looking for ED treatment, you’ll be advised to try tablets first if you can. Caverject is very simple to use once you’ve got the hang of it, but for people taking ED treatment for the first time tablets tend to be easier. 

What’s the difference between Dual Chamber and ‘Vials’?

One is a bit simpler to pre-mix. Caverject Vials are supplied as a powder and solution separately, which you mix manually using a different needle to the one you use to inject it into the penis.

In Dual Chamber, both compartments are contained within one plunger, and you mix them together by twisting a switch.

You can also get Caverject Vials in a higher concentration (40mcg) as well as in lower concentrations (10 and 20mcg). Caverject Dual Chamber is only available in 10 and 20mcg concentrations.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CAVERJECT

What’s the starting dose for Caverject?

You can set the dose using the plunger you get with the injection, and your prescriber will advise you what dose to use. For most men, the starting dose of Caverject is 1.25-2.5mcg. When you first start Caverject, you’ll ‘titrate’, which means start off small and gradually increase the dose until you and your prescriber find the level that works best for you. The majority of men tend to find this is between 5 and 20mcg with Caverject.
