What is a Trimix injection?
TriMix Definition: TriMix is a common term used to describe a mixture of Papaverine, Phentolamine, and Alprostadil (PGE). Each of these drugs produces a vasodilating effect when injected into the penis. The injection is done using a very small needle, inserted into the proper area along the shaft of the penis, so the drug mixture is delivered into the corpus cavernosum. The mixture of drugs causes the corpus cavernosum to relax, dilate, and become filled with blood, producing an erection. TriMix therapy is recognized as a viable treatment for erectile dysfunction by the American Urological Society.
TriMix is generally an effective, low-cost treatment, especially for those patients who have not had good results.
TriMix injections offer a solution for ED that is:
- More affordable than oral medications
- Not affected by alcohol consumption
How long do TriMix injections last?
Erections achieved from a TriMix injection should last between one and two hours.
Are TriMix injections effective?
Yes! TriMix is 90% effective.
Is TriMix safe to use?
Absolutely. Since 1983, intracavernous injections like TriMix have proven to be the most effective non-surgical treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED), according to the American Urologic Association.
