Men Avoid Tri-mix Self-Injection Because It Requires a Needle
The most effective non-surgical treatment for ED is penile injection. This is where a combination of vasodilators is injected with a needle directly into the penis just before sexual activity. Its most common form is a liquid called trimix injection. But most men won’t or can’t self-inject themselves with a hypodermic needle into their own penis. That’s why we developed TriMix-gel®.
Trimix is a compound of vasodilators when combined for use at the same time. “trimix for injection”, has not been reviewed by the FDA for the specific indication of erectile dysfunction. But these vasodilators, have been reviewed individually, and have been in medical use for decades.
The compound needs to be kept refrigerated until use, at which time it is injected into the side of the penis before sexual activity. TriMix-gel does not need refrigeration, has a longer expiration date and of course, NO NEEDLE.
This triple mix compound known as trimix injection, contains the vasodilators prostaglandin, papaverine, and phentolamine. Trimix has been widely prescribed by physicians for the treatment of ED for many years.
Physicians and patients agree, trimix injection is the “Gold Standard” for non-surgical treatment of ED. In fact, the American Urological Association (AUA) recommends trimix for injection in their official protocol for urologists who treat ED. https://www.auanet.org/guidelines/erectile-dysfunction#x2650
TriMix-gel® uses the same vasodilators. The difference is the medicine has been turned into a powder so it can be mixed with a medicated gel at time of use and applied at the tip of the penis instead of injected with a hypodermic needle. There is no needle.
