Muse review

Muse or Medicated Urethral Suppository for Erection by Vivus is also known as Prostaglandin E1 and is used to manage erectile dysfunction through its vasodilatory features. It is also available as Caverject and Edex, which are brand names for its injectable form. Muse transports the medicine as a penile drug delivery system placed in the urethra for at least ten minutes before you need an erection. In contrast, the likewise fast-acting Caverject and Edex are injected directly into the penis's corpus cavernosum.

This medication is recommended for men with erectile dysfunction problems but can also be used to preserve a patent ductus arteriosus in the newborn. This is mostly effective when there is a danger of premature ductus arteriosus closure in a baby with ductal-dependent congenital heart disease including acyanotic lesions (that is, interrupted aortic arch, critical aortic stenosis, hypoplastic left heart syndrome, and coarctation of the aorta).

Muse is taken as needed to achieve penile erection. The effect starts about five to ten minutes after administration and can last from about thirty minutes to a whole hour. Dosage should be determined by your doctor and you will be examined for any unfavorable side effects afterwards. Follow the approved instructions precisely. You should be instructed in detail on usage by your doctor before trying to administer the medication by yourself. Remember that each product is for single use only and should not be used repeatedly.

Common side effects of Muse include headache, flu symptoms, palpitations, dizziness, minor penile bleeding or spotting, and penile/testicular pain. If any of these adverse effects persist or worsen, consult your doctor immediately. You should also report the very rare but grave side effects of severe unsteadiness or fainting due to possible blood pressure decrease.

As for your female partner, she may sometimes experience vaginal burning or itching after sex. It is currently not known if this has anything to do with the medication itself or not. If you notice any other side effects not listed in this article, immediately contact your doctor to discuss them.
