TriMix is the common term used to describe the mixture of Papaverine, Phentolamine, and Alprostadil (PGE) used to battle erectile dysfunction. When injected into the penis, these drugs produce a vasodilating effect which is the widening of blood vessels. The drug mixture is delivered into the corpus cavernosum through a very small needle into the proper area along the shaft of the penis. The injections promote relaxation and dilation in the corpus cavernous which allows it to become filled with blood and produce an erection. TriMix is recognized as an effective treatment by the American Urological Society.
TriMix offers a low-cost and effective treatment for most males and especially for patients who have experienced poor results or severe side-effects from PDE5 inhibitors like Viagra®, Levitra®, Cialis®.
