Uses of Caverject 20mcg Injection

The Caverject injection is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in adult males due to various causes such as neurogenic, vasculogenic, psychogenic, or mixed etiology.

How Does Caverject Injection Work?

Caverject works by widening blood vessels in the penis, allowing blood to flow more easily and making it easier to achieve and maintain an erection.

How Should You Take Caverject 20mcg Injection?

It’s crucial to take this medication exactly as outlined in the leaflet provided or as instructed by your doctor, pharmacist, or nurse. If you’re unsure about anything, don’t hesitate to check with them. For your initial use, a doctor or nurse will demonstrate how to administer the injection. It’s important not to attempt self-injection until you’ve learned the correct technique. If you’re unsure or can’t remember how to do it, please consult your healthcare trainer again for guidance. Remember, these instructions are only a reminder. Be careful to keep the antiseptic swab away from your eyes.

The dosage of Caverject needed to treat erectile dysfunction varies from person to person. Your doctor will determine the right dose for you and will regularly monitor its effectiveness. Typically, the starting dose ranges between 1.25 and 2.5 micrograms. Most men find that a dose of 5 to 20 micrograms is suitable, but some may require a higher dose. To reduce the risk of a prolonged and painful erection, your doctor will prescribe the lowest effective dose.

It’s important to note that you should never use more than 60 micrograms. If Caverject is being used for diagnostic purposes to understand the cause of your erectile dysfunction, the dose will usually be between 5 and 20 micrograms. We recommend following your doctor’s advice closely to ensure safe and effective treatment.
