Prostin VR review

Prostin VR is used to manage erectile dysfunction through its vasodilatory features and is sold in the United States under the brand name Muse or Medicated Urethral Suppository for Erection by Vivus. It is also available as Caverject and Edex, which are brand names for its injectable form. Prostin VR transports the medication as a penile drug delivery system inserted into the urethra for at least ten minutes before you desire an erection. In contrast, Caverject and Edex are injected directly into the penis's corpus cavernosum.

This medicine is recommended for men with erectile dysfunction but can also be used to preserve a patent ductus arteriosus in newborns. This is most 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).

Prostin VR is taken as needed to achieve penile erection and the patient will begin to notice the effects in about five to ten minutes after administration and can last from about thirty minutes to an hour. Dosage should be determined by your healthcare professional and you will be examined for any side effects after. Follow the approved instructions precisely. Your healthcare professional should instruct you in detail before you try to administer the medication by yourself. Each product is for single use only and should not be used repeatedly.

Common side effects of Prostin VR 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 healthcare professional immediately. You should also report the very rare but grave side effects of severe unsteadiness or fainting due to possible blood pressure decrease.

Note that your female partner may sometimes experience vaginal burning or itching after sex. It is unclear if this has anything to do with the medication itself or not. If you experience any other side effects, immediately contact your healthcare professional to discuss them.

Before taking this medication, inform your healthcare professional of all prescription and nonprescription medications you've been taking, especially medicines that can sometimes cause erection problems like MAO inhibitors (furazolidone, selegiline, phenelzine), blood thinners (aspirin, warfarin, NSAIDs), phenothiazines (chlorpromazine), anti-anxiety medications, calcium channel blockers or other high blood pressure medications, hydralazine, terazosin, prazosin, propranolol (beta-blockers), guanfacine, guanabenz, disopyramide, clonidine, thiazide water pills, methyldopa, spironolactone, and tricyclic antidepressants. Do not start or stop taking any medicine without prior healthcare professional consent.

Inform your healthcare professional of your medical history before taking this medication, especially if you have a history of allergies, prolonged erections from other medications, cancer, physical penis abnormalities, blood or bleeding disorders, low blood pressure, or heart disease. Also understand that this medication offers no protection against sexually transmitted diseases and infections such as Hepatitis B or HIV (AIDS).

Overdosing with Prostin VR can lead to experiencing a painful and persistent erection for hours on end. If left untreated, this can cause you to have a permanent inability to have an erection. Seek emergency medical attention if you experience a prolonged and agonizing erection after using this medication.
