Alprostadil is used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) and to help diagnose certain causes of this disorder. Alprostadil is also used to improve blood flow in newborn babies with a certain genetic heart condition. This alprostadil medication guide addresses only the adult male use of this medication in erectile disorders. Alprostadil relaxes blood vessels and muscles in the penis. This increases blood flow into the penis, causing an erection. Alprostadil may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Medicated urethral system erection (MUSE) is a small pallet that is inserted into a small hole that is found in the penis. The pallets of the medicines are contained in a small tube that is inserted into the urethra. The pallets are released by pressing a button that is found in the applicator. The urethra has membranes that absorb the medicine. After the absorption, an erection will be achieved in about 10 minutes and will last between 30-60 minutes.
Muse is a drug that is used to effectively treat erectile dysfunction. It is categorized under a group of drugs known as impotence agents vasodilators.
When given to a patient that has a problem with erection, Muse suppository works by inducing penile erection by simply widening particular muscles inside the penis. By doing this, it opens blood vessels thus aiding in the increase of blood flow to the penis. The moment there is sufficient blood flow to the penis, the desired erection begins.
However, when the alprostadil effect wears off, the blood flow returns to its normal state and erection of the penis disappears.
