Trimix efficacy over time

Postby c0r5a38 » Sun Dec 30, 2018 11:54 am

Hello. I've started on Trimix (auto-inject) 2+ years ago with good results, compound is 30/1/0.01, dosage crept up over time from 5-6 units to 10 all under doc's/np guidance. Over the last five weeks results have been less than satisfactory, barely firm enough for intercourse (call it a 6-7 out of 10). I thought perhaps the Trimix aged (7 months) so i refilled but no change. Is this to be expected? Does our body adjust to the med and we require an increased dosage over time? Or should the mix be modified?

Thanks!

I've seen alot of posts from men who were using TRI-MIX for years and never developing a tolerance or degraded results....but that was not my experience. I started on the weakest BI-MIX 3 years ago and got 5 hour erections; I'm now using the strongest TRI-MIX and QUAD-MIX available for 30 minute partial erections where if we both lay on our side, I can "scrunch it in". When I started injecting it was like getting a new lease on life, but i did seem to developed a tolerance. I've tried abstaining for a while, to see if I can get the old better results back.....but to no avail . I'm looking at implants now and was surprised to find many on this forum who once injected, actually prefer life with the implant. I personally did not mind excusing myself to inject, as it seemed much less uncomfortable than the humiliation of ED. I'm hesitating on the implant because its a point of no return....i would love to hear what others think.

@ questionguy
things that make me hesitate: Insurance refusing to help pay, surgical complications which could result in removal of implant, loss of length (one guy here said he went from a 8" to a 6"), Skinny flat boners where the corpus spongiosum (bottom of shaft) dosn't inflate as well as the glans/head not inflating, loss of sense of a sextual response, not being able to cum.

How long of breaks did you take? Did you still masturbate/sex? Did you take viagra during your breaks? Do you ever have a random good day where the trimix works better? Do you have any natural ability to get a erection what so ever?

My Trimix worked well for about three years and then I had to increase its strength every six months until 75 units no longer provided satisfactory results. Not sure whether the loss of effectiveness was a result of developing tolerance or if the cause (Diabetes/veneous leak) of my ED worsened.

I'm not a medical professional of any kind. Anything I post is based on my own experiences at best and hallucinations or delusions at worst. Nothing I post should be misconstrues as medical advice. Always ask your doctor and follow his/her advice.

I don't know if your basic cause of ED is changing or worsening or if you're building tolerance.

The volume of meds you're injecting is pretty low by comparison to most users. So you may have a good ways to go toward increasing volume.
If I understand your formula correctly your alprostadil (PGE1) component is low. So you may have a good ways to go toward increasing the strength of your mix.

I added novelty (sex shop) cock rings to the mix. It helps some guys, me included. If you haven't tried that option you might want to consider it. I've given my take on it several times. If interested you'll have to experiment to find what works. You want tight enough to assist without necessitating time limits on use.

Juts a minor update...the NP recommended an increase from 10 units to 12. The thought process is not so much tolerance buildup as much as a natural progression (regression?!) of my ED. Haven't had the opportunity yet :)

You're only injecting 10 unIts? You certainly should increase the amount of units. Keep moving up until you see a difference. The next step would be upping to a stronger formula.

You're not alone on your journey. I was once injecting 130 units -- yes, two needle pokes. My uro and I kept tweaking the formula until we started finding success. Even now I may step up one more level to the strongest formula available.

For some of us, Trimix is a lifelong journey.

That doesnt sound right at all !

It doesnt matter how small the amount of trimix youre using as long as its effective. When I started out on it I used a small amount and erections were firm and lasted long time. Its not the quantity its the quality that counts. If you need to up your units by all means only if you notice a change in erection firmness and/or time you stay erect. But if youre using small amounts of trimix and its effective already dont be duped into thinking more will be as or more effective. As long as youre getting good quality erections stay with the amount youre using.

I'm not sure what your point is or why you say my post, or at least the quoted parts, don't make sense. Otherwise, I don't disagree with your post.
