Just 10 minutes after the administration of micro-suppository Alprostadil, a man’s ability to achieve erection is restored. However, an hour after the administration of micro-suppository Alprostadil, erection again disappears.

After the administration of intracavernosal injection Alprostadil, erection is achieved within a few minutes. Herewith, duration of pharmacological effect of Alprostadil injections does not exceed one hour.

However, the pharmacological effect of phosphodiesterase inhibitors lasts significantly longer than that of micro-suppository and injections Alprostadil.
