In Depth Information on Alpostin Injection

Expert advice for Alpostin Injection

  • Alprostadil is either injected into the penis or used as a urethral suppository (pellet to be placed into the urinary opening of the penis) to produce an erection before a sexual intercourse. Consult your doctor regarding administration of alprostadil.
  • Do not use more than one dose of alprostadil in a 24-hour period.
  • If you experience an erection that lasts for > 4 hours, consult your doctor immediately, as it can lead to permanent sexual problems such as impotence.

  • Alprostadil will not protect your partner from pregnancy. Use a reliable and appropriate contraceptive.
