What If My Erection Does Not Begin to Go Down After 3 Hours (Or If I Want It to Go Down Sooner)?

Remember to start low and go slow. It may take a few different attempts to find your right dosage.

This is a very rare side effect that usually occurs from injecting too much medication.

Even though it is very rare for patients to experience an erection that does not begin to go down after 3 hours, it is important for you to be fully educated of your options.

Option 1: Take Sudafed (Pseudoephedrine 30mg, Purchased at the Pharmacy Counter)

If you experience the rare event of an erection lasting more than 3 hours, you may take 4 Sudafed (pseudoephedrine) 30mg (purchased at the pharmacy counter, no prescription needed) by mouth once and apply an ice pack between your legs at 20 minute intervals.  If your erection does not begin to go away within the next hour then your will need to inject the included antidote of Phenylephrine HCl Injection. 

Option 2: Inject Phenylephrine HCl (Included in Your Initial Order)

In the extremely rare occurrence that your erection has not started to go down after ejaculation or an hour after taking 4 Sudafed (pseudoephedrine) tablets and applying the ice pack between your legs for 20 minutes, then you will need to administer the injectable penile antidote, Phenylephrine HCl (included in your first order). This antidote is already pre-mixed.

Inject the Phenylephrine HCl directly into your penis just like you injected the original medication (although now your penis will be fully erect). You can review the injection process video at any time (click here to view the instructional video). It will be easier to see the veins that you need to avoid in an erect penis.

Inject 25 units of Phenylephrine HCl 0.1% into your penis. This can be injected at either side of the penis. After injection, the injection site should be compressed and lightly massaged to facilitate drug distribution. 

If your erection does not begin to go down after 5 minutes, inject another 25 units. Repeat this process up to a maximum total of 4 injections of 25 units in 5 minute intervals​. Do not exceed 100 units. ​

Again, this is a very rare side effect that usually occurs from injecting too much medication.

If your erection still does not start to go down within 1 hour after the injection of Phenylephrine HCl, then take pictures of all your medications and go to the emergency room.
