How to use MUSE (Alprostadil)

Alprostadil is an erectile dysfunction “ED” treatment capable of giving an erection strong enough for sex in a large percentage of men. Alprostadil is a man-made synthetic hormone which works by expanding the blood vessels. This improves blood flow to the penis and makes it easier for people with erectile dysfunction to achieve an erection. Most users will be able to get an erection in between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on the method used for the application.

Treating ED with MUSE

MUSE comes in single-use applicators, administered as-needed 5 to 10 minutes prior to sexual activity. In most cases an erection will occur even without sexual stimulation.

Each applicator has a stem containing a medicated pellet, a protective cap at the tip of the stem, a bulb on top of the stem, and button on top of the bulb which pushes the medication out of the stem.

For best results sit, stand or walk until an erection develops. Laying down will make it more difficult for blood to reach the penis.

Like all medicines, MUSE can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. They are usually mild and disappear after a short time.

If you get a long-lasting erection of more than 4 hours, contact your doctor immediately. Your doctor may reduce your dose of MUSE or discontinue your treatment.
