What Is Trimix?
Trimex is a compounded drug, which is injected into the penis in the case of erectile dysfunction. It contains three vasodilators: papaverine, phentolamine, and prostaglandin E1.
It is injected in the side of the penis at the base. Never where inject in the top or the bottom as this could cause injury.
It is only one injection per time, and you can inject it as often as every other day. Again, changing sides with each injection.
You typically see full results within 10 to 15 minutes after injection.
Can I Buy Trimix Injection Online?
You can buy Trimix only from a compounding pharmacy. You cannot purchase Trimix injection from Walgreens, CVS, Wal-Mart and other pharmacies.
How Much Does Trimix Cost?
Trimix will cost you approximately $90 for refills every three to six months, depending upon the frequency of use. This includes medication, syringes, and alcohol wipes. You will get 5 milligrams of medication.
It must be refrigerated as heat causes the medication to degrade. A pharmacist may give you icepacks when you’re taking home, but don’t leave it in the car or on the counter for a long time.
Trimix Side Effects
The risk with Trimix includes bleeding and infection. You can reduce the risk by using alcohol wipes and pressure at the injection site.
The curvature of the penis, which is called Peyronie’s disease, may also occur. If you notice that you’re developing curvature, contact your doctor.
The most significant risk is priapism, which is an erection that lasts longer than four hours. If you were to have a rigid erection for two hours, you would need to take two regular release Sudafed.
If after one additional hour after taking Sudafed, your erection is not reduced, please contact regional urology or go to the E.R. if the office is not open. You have to speak with a urologist to inform of your situation.
If this erection were to persist longer than four hours, it may cause irreversible damage and result in permanent erectile dysfunction. If you were to continue to get prolonged erections, please call your urologist.
How To Inject Trimix
In this article, we’re going to show you how to properly inject Trimix medication.
Inside of the brown bottle, you’ll find the antidote to the medication, which is called phenylephrine. Inside the clear bottle, you’ll find the Trimix medication.
To get started, you’ll want to remove the syringe from the packaging. There’s a protective cap over the needle on the syringe. There’s also a protective cap on the back of the syringe.
You’ll use the alcohol prepared to clean the top of the vial, as well as the injection site.
On the top of the Trimix vile, there’s a protective seal. You’ll want to remove the protective seal and expose the rubber membrane.
Open the alcohol prepared and use it to clean the rubber membrane on the top of the Trimix vial. Remove the cap on the back of the syringe, exposing the plunger. Then remove the front cap and expose the needle.
Before you place the syringe inside the vial, you’ll want to draw back the same amount of units you’ve been prescribed to inject.
Insert the syringe into the vial through the rubber membrane. You’ll want to press down on the plunger and push the air into the vial. You’ll then want to slowly drawback the required amount of units into the syringe.
Pool the syringe straight out of the vial. Set the vial down and then recap the front of the syringe.
The area of the penis that you’re injecting the medication into is called the Corpus Cavernosum. It runs on either side of the penis. You’ll want to make sure to inject at the 10 o’clock or two o’clock position.
Do not inject on the same side. Each time you use the medication, you’ll want to make sure that you’re alternating sides between usage.
This diagram shows where the Corpus Cavernosum is located inside the penis.
Before you apply the medication, you’ll want to clean the area of injection with the alcohol prep pad. As you go to apply the medication, make sure that you don’t pull on the penis or twist the penis in any way because this may affect the injection site.
Now you’re ready to apply the medication. You’ll want to remove the cap. And in one swift motion, you’ll apply the medication. Make sure that you avoid any veins.
Pull the syringe straight out of the penis. After injecting, you’ll want to apply pressure to the injection site. You’ll then want to massage the area of entry for about one minute and allow the medication to spread evenly throughout the entire penis.
To give you an idea of the amount of pressure you’ll want to apply to the plunger and you go to administer the medication, try drawing up water into one of the syringes. Go place your thumb on the back of the plunger and lightly press on the back of the plunger.
This is the same amount of pressure you’ll want to apply to the plunger when you go to inject the Trimix medication.
If you find that you have to apply more pressure than this, then you may not be in the Corpus Cavernosum. It means the medication will not be effective.
How To Use Trimix Antidote
If you experience an erection lasting longer than two hours, you’ll want to apply the antidote to the medication, which is called phenylephrine. You apply it the same way you apply the Trimix medication.
First, draw up air into the syringe. Then insert the syringe into the vial of phenylephrine. Slowly draw back 50 units of phenylephrine into the syringe. Pull the syringe straight out of the vial and then recap the front of the syringe.
You’ll want to inject one inch above the base of the penis at the 10 o’clock or two o’clock position. You want to make sure that you avoid any veins.
And again, you’ll want to massage the area of entry for about one minute, right after you administer the medication.
