What Is Trimix
TriMix is a medicine that is, in truth, three drugs mixed into one, hence the name TriMix. It is made in a sterile lab in compounding pharmacies, which is why it’s a compound drug (compounded medication). This means that it can only be filled at pharmacies that make medications in this manner. It's also made just for you and your needs, which means your doctor or nurse may suggest a certain pharmacy they know and trust to make your medicine.
The FDA hasn't given TriMix the green light, although it has three components. Some doctors give it to men with erectile dysfunction (ED) or penile rehab, especially after prostate surgery. This is meant to help you get an erection again after your procedure.
TriMix usually has a mix of alprostadil, phentolamine, and papaverine as its active ingredients. So, it's called "TriMix," where "tri" means "three." In the same way, QuadMix has four ingredients, and BiMix has only two.
In fact, alprostadil is a common ingredient in many other ED drugs that the FDA has approved. Among these are Edex, Caverject, and Caverject Impulse, but alprostadil is the only active drug in these medicines.
How Trimix Helps With ED
Your doctor might want you to test the drug in their office first before starting TriMix. Based on your reaction, they can use this information to determine the appropriate initial dose. They might also teach you how to administer the injection on your own during this period.
TriMix is normally provided in a vial with syringes so that you can administer the injections on your own. Keeping your prescription in the freezer will typically extend its shelf life. So, before using it, you might need to defrost it. When it's ready, remove your dose from the vial and double-check the dosage.
Your dose will be injected into a specific location on your penis. To prevent the formation of scar tissue, rotate the injection locations each time. It should not be injected into blood vessels since this may result in bruising. Apply pressure to the injection site for two to three minutes after extracting the needle. This may aid in reducing bruising or bleeding.
In most cases, TriMix is successful in treating erectile dysfunction in men. It is effective in 90% of the cases. An erection that is strong and long-lasting is the typical outcome of receiving a Trimix injection.
Does Trimix Have Side Effects?
Despite the fact that TriMix is mostly a safe drug to administer, some men may encounter a few negative effects. Several potential adverse effects include
- If adequate procedures are not used when providing the injection, pain may develop at the injection site. To lessen the possibility of pain, apply topical anesthetic treatments.
- It's possible to experience priapism, a prolonged erection. This is a medical emergency and needs immediate medical attention.
- If a vein is accidentally ruptured when providing the TriMix injection, bleeding may happen at the injection site.
- If adequate injection technique is not followed, temporary swelling of the penile skin may develop.

Pills VS. Trimix Injections
Over 70% of men with erectile dysfunction benefit from Viagra, which is also simple to use. TriMix works for a wider range of patients, including those who cannot take Viagra. TriMix works for >95% of men while Viagra only works for 70% of men with moderate to severe ED, despite the fact that TriMix is generally used by men for whom Viagra and prostaglandin do not function well when compared "Apples to Apples."
TriMix is more effective than Viagra, but because Viagra is easier to use, more men choose to use it. TriMix is typically only prescribed to those for whom oral drugs like Viagra and Cialis do not work because they are simpler to use and do not require injections.
Trimix Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is TriMix?
Erectile dysfunction can be treated with the injectable medication known as TriMix, which contains three different drugs. In order to properly administer the injection, it must first be compounded by a pharmacy and then given as an intracavernosal injection.
How long does it take TriMix to work?
TriMix is taken just before sexual activity. In most cases, it takes between 5 and 10 minutes after dosing for the drug to start working.
However, if you don't obtain an erection after taking one dose, don't take another until your doctor tells you to. And until your doctor tells you to, you shouldn't try any other ED drugs. There is a possibility that the medication you are using is out of date and that this is what is causing the problem. However, your healthcare professional may need to change your dose of TriMix if it doesn't have the desired effect.
How long do the effects of TriMix last?
The average duration of an erection is between 30 and 60 minutes. This varies from case to case. However, if it lasts more than four hours, you should seek medical attention immediately. See below for details.
Is TriMix better than other ED medications?
When compared to oral medications like Viagra, TriMix injections have a quicker onset of action and a longer duration of effect. Injections of TriMix are not influenced in any way by the ingestion of food or drink. The effects of a TriMix injection might be seen in as little as 15 minutes.
Is TriMix covered by insurance?
Patients who order TriMix for usage in their homes are normally responsible for covering the whole cost of the medication themselves. Depending on the needs of the patient, the cost of a single dose of TriMix can range anywhere from a few dollars (between $2 and $3) to thirty dollars (at least $30).
What is in TriMix?
Alprostadil, phentolamine, and papaverine are all regarded to be vasodilators, and these are the three components that make up TriMix. They accomplish this by dilating blood vessels, which in turn increases the amount of blood that flows to the penis. This can lead to the development of an erection.

Are there serious side-effects to TriMix?
Mild to severe TriMix injection side effects are less frequent. However, they do happen occasionally. Nonetheless, we want to emphasize to patients that they are all different. As a result, it's crucial to keep an eye out for adverse effects during your first few uses of TriMix and to inform your healthcare professional if any do arise. The less frequent side effects include:
- Vomiting, nausea, stomach pain, or diarrhea.
- An allergic response (hives, swelling, itching, etc.)
- Abruptly lowering blood pressure.
- Higher heart rate.
- Irregular heartbeat.
- Scarring or fibrosis near the injection site.
Most of the time, the worst side effects of TriMix injection come from using too much or more often than the instructions say. This can cause an erection that lasts for 4 hours or more and doesn't go away by itself.
