Erectile Dysfunction (ED)


What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

ED is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction usually has a physical cause, such as disease, injury, or side effects caused from medications. Any disorder that affects the nerves or impairs blood flow in the penis has the potential to cause erectile dysfunction. Common diseases that can contribute to ED include:

  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes
  • High Cholesterol
  • Prostate Problems

Intracavernosal Injection

Canandaigua The Medicine Shoppe has been making an intracavernosal injection commonly referred to as TriMix, to help erectile dysfunction (ED) sufferers for many years now and can offer patients and physicians a wealth of information, instruction and training on the medication.

What is TriMix?

TriMix injections are an intracavernosal injection that is a mixture of 3 drugs that provide an effective treatment for men struggling with erectile dysfunction (ED). It is an alternative treatment for men who cannot take, have not had good results with, or experience severe side effects from PDE5 Inhibitor tablets (Viagra®, Levitra®, Cialis®).

TriMix injections are a medication that typically contains these three medications – Alprostadil, Phentolamine, Papaverine. It can be customized to the patients needs as we work together with the physician and patient to develop a formula that is most effective for each individual patient. Some patients may require QuadMix which adds Atropine in with the 3 TriMix ingredients.

TriMix injections offer a solution for ED that is:

  • Safe
  • More affordable than oral medications
  • Reliable
  • Fast Acting
  • Long lasting erections
  • Not affected by alcohol consumption

TriMix injections provide longer and fuller erections that can last even through climax, allowing you to maintain and even improve, your sexual health!

Ask your physician if an intracavernosal injection of TriMix could help you. Call our compounding pharmacists for further information and assistance.
