Is the use of injections to treat ED new?

Injection therapy for the treatment of ED is not a new treatment. It was first introduced in the early 1980s. Papavarine was the first substance used and studied extensively in the 1980s. Injection therapies are still in widespread use for the treatment of ED and are a safe and reliable alternative to other ED treatments.

Only Caverject and Edex are FDA approved for use. Compounding pharmacies mix the other combination therapies and because no specific pharmaceutical company has the licensing rights to the combinations, FDA studies have never been conducted, and likely never will, to determine their exact safety and reliability. These combination agents, however, have been used for more than a decade longer than Caverject and Edex and are just as safe and probably more effective in most men.
