Caverject (Alprostadil) is a prescription injection that is used for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). It may also be used to help doctors diagnose ED. Alprostadil belongs to a class of medications known as prostaglandins. This medication works by relaxing the muscles and expanding blood vessels in the penis to increase blood flow to the penis to cause an erection. Alprostadil does not cure erectile dysfunction or increase sexual desire. Caverject usually begins to work in about 5 to 10 minutes. You should attempt to have sexual intercourse within 10-30 minutes after using this medication.
