If you think you have ED, contact your family doctor to determine treatment for the underlying health issue. In some cases you may then be referred to a urologist who specializes in urinary and reproductive health. If it is determined that you need medication for ED there are many different types depending on your condition. For a lot of cases, oral tablets are effective. For a lot of other men, tablets may not be effective or may not be safe to use. One option for them is:

It is an alternative treatment for men who cannot take, have not had good results with, or experience severe side effects from PDE5 Inhibitor tablets (Viagra®, Levitra®, Cialis®). TriMix injections are a medication that is very customized to the patients needs. Carlton Heights Pharmasave will work together with the physician and patient to develop a formula that is most effective for the individual patient. TriMix injections offer a solution for ED that is:

TriMix Injection Instructions

Selecting the proper injection site is very important:

  • The proper injection site for Trimix injections are either at the 10 o’clock or 2 o’clock position along the bottom half of the penis.
  • Avoid the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions and any visible veins or arteries on the surface.
  • Clean the TriMix injection site with an alcohol pad
  • Using a 1/2 inch, 29 gauge needle, penetrate the skin at a 90-degree angle. Be sure to insert the full length of the needle to ensure the Trimix is delivered to the proper depth. Inject the Trimix solution in a slow steady motion until the syringe is empty
  • Withdraw the needle and apply pressure at the TriMix injection point for about 1 minute.

Alternative to Tablets

TriMix injections are an alternative to PDE5 Inhibitor tablets (Viagra®, Levitra®, Cialis®) and most commonly include the mixture of 3 drugs; phentolamine, papaverine and alprostadil. TriMix injections are especially useful when patients are unable to take PDE5 Inhibitors because they are taking nitrates, certain beta blockers, or experience severe side effects from the oral medications.

How it works

An intracavernous injection is the most effective non-surgical treatment for ED, according to the American Urologic Association. Injections into the penis, unlike oral medications, trigger an automatic erection in less than 5 minutes.


The initial dose should be determined by your physician or our trained pharmacists can help your Physician determine the appropriate starting dose. Do not be discouraged by a poor result with the first few injections, as the initial dose should be kept low to avoid a prolonged erection. TriMix injection is a medication that is very customized to the patients’ needs. Carlton Heights Pharmasave will work together with the physician and patient to develop a TriMix injection formula that is most effective for the individual patient.
