Customer Question

I am a 51 year old male and have had ED for years. Viagra used to work, but does not anymore. Cialis never worked. I have read about trimix on line. Is that something that a urologist would prescribe for me, or is it only used for men who have had prostate surgery?

Hi

Bi-mix or Trimix can be used by any person who has ED (unless there are contraindications). It is not reserved only for persons after prostate surgery.

It has to prescribed by an urologist and has to be formulated at a pharmacy locally as it is not commercially available.

Caverject is the only commercially available penile injection for ED.

You can consult your urologist who can prescribe the medications if required.

Thank you
