IntraUrethral Gels (Trimix Gel)
Intraurethral gels are a non-invasive way to treat erectile dysfunction. Gels are formulated with one or two FDA approved ingredients: Alprostadil and Phentolamine. Although not as effective as the injection therapy form of these same ingredients, the gel is inserted into the urethra prior to intercourse or daily for rehabilitation purposes. The medication works to relax smooth muscle in the penis and increase blood flow to the cavernosal chambers. Gel therapy may be an effective choice for patients averse to penile injection therapy.
