In Depth Information on Prostin VR Injection

Expert advice for Prostin VR 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 you or your partner from sexually transmitted diseases (e.g. AIDS) or blood-borne diseases (eg, hepatitis B). Take necessary precautions to prevent such infections.
  • Alprostadil will not protect your partner from pregnancy. Use a reliable and appropriate contraceptive.
  • You will need to have regular check-ups with your doctor while you are using alprostadil.
  • Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks as alprostadil may cause dizziness.
