If pills, needles, or pumps aren’t for you—there’s MUSE.
Male sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles, and blood vessels. Any or all of these can contribute to erectile dysfunction (ED).
For some men with ED, a pill does the trick. Some men like pumps or injections, but you may prefer an alternative.
That’s where MUSE comes in.
MUSE is unique.
MUSE is different from other ED treatments. It’s a small medicated pellet that works locally to produce an erection.
Reasons to consider MUSE:
- MUSE is inserted directly into the penis
- Unlike a pill
- MUSE does not need to be absorbed through your stomach lining and then through your body’s bloodstream
- MUSE is not as dependent on blood flow
- Unlike treatment with local injection, which can bruise—and even scar—the penis, MUSE does not require you to puncture the skin of your penis
- MUSE starts working within 5 to 10 minutes and can continue working for approximately 30 to 60 minutes
- MUSE is a treatment option for many men with ED who want to enjoy sex on a regular basis. You are limited to using MUSE 2 times within a 24-hour period.
MUSE—a possible solution to a frustrating problem.
If pills, pumps, or needles aren’t for you, ask your doctor about MUSE. He or she will help you find the dose that works for you and provide information that can be helpful to both you and your partner.
