Carverjet Availability

Where can I get Carverjet? Everyone seems to be out. My boyfriend can't seem to find Carverjet anywhere. ## How can I get carver jet and how much does it cost ## Hello Patricia, According to the FDA there are no known Caverjet shortages so it's simply that your area hasn't restocked up on it. Unfortunately this can be problematic as pharmacies have no legal obligation to carry specific medications or brands. Really the only thing you can do is continue to call around or visit locations with your prescription and see if they can provide you with information. If you go to larger chain pharmacies such as walgreens, walmart, rite-aid etc. you can ask them if any of the neighboring stores of that chain have the medication in stock or at least which one is closest. I'm really ...

So far no luck. It is not carried by Mercury, the largest drug store chain in the Philippines. It is approved for use here, but getting it is a problem. ## How & where can i buy vitaros cream (alprostadil cream) in the Philippines? ## It's available in angeles (the injectable version)... What I'm interested though is the cream type, is it available in the Philippines? If so, w...

Caverject Drug Information

Can you still use Caverject past the 3-month expiration date safely? ## Hello. I have a question about Caverject. I know it's an Ed drug. It was recommended to me a few years ago but not actually for the typical Ed problem. The tissue hardens but the size doesn't change. I was very overweight in my younger years and well embarrassingly so had problems with that and it or something close to it (an injectable medication) was recommended to me saying it would "put me in normal operating range". Is this true or is there something else like this that could help? This is a very touchy subject for me so please be nice. ## Bill, it does not become dangerous, once expired, but it may lose efficacy, so it would be better to dispose of it, and ask your doctor to prescribe more. The...

I have Caverject 20mcg Dual Chamber. I want to use half and save the rest for another occasion. After administering it once, can I inj. the rest of the solution from the same syringe? ## I used half of the Caverject (10mcg) on one occasion, then was able to reset the syringe to 20mcg and use the other half.

Combining 10 and 20mg Caverject

My doctor said to increase dosage from 20mg to 25 and then in small increments if necessary. He has prescribed both 10 and 20 mg packets. Do I use the same syringe and fluid to mix both vials or use separate syringes and fluids which would result it having to have two injections, 20 from the first and then half of the 10 mg syringe to give 25 mg?

Beware of long term usage of caverjet &mothers.

Having used carverjet & other manufactures, please be aware that after about 3-4 years of Injecting scarring will Acurr over the period ,and you will notice it more difficult to pass urine.it is a slow process & you may not notice. However as time goes on it will more difficult to enter the needle, From my own experience I would advise you to stop using. Otherwise you could end up using a catheter bag. Things manufacturers do state , but not the outcome. ## Hi, I've been using Caverject for many years now, and a long time ago, about two and a half years ago I talked to my Dr about using my 31 gauge syringe that I use for my insulin, he couldn't find any info on it but told me to just try it, if it works then great if not then back to the 30 gauge, well the 31 gauge works...

Is expired caverject dangerous to use?

I didn't use my injectable vasodilator when I first got it three years ago, but I kept it in the refrigerator. Now I want to use it. Is it dangerous to use so long after the expiration date or just less effective. I'd like to try it at least, but not if there's some dangerous chemical reaction that could cause damage over time. ## Hello, Lou! How are you? Liquid forms of medications can actually go bad, with time, so it would be best not to risk it and see your doctor for a new supply, if needed. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including administration site bleeding, redness and irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?
