Here is a photo of the 3 syringes and needle lengths I use. All are either 30 or 31 gauge needles.

Both the 1ml syringes will work in the autoinjector, you just have to adjust the needle depth to ensure the needle goes all the way into your penis. I am fortunate that I only need a small dose (10 units) for a full 2 to 3 hour erection, so the smaller of the 3 syringes works for me.

Frank Talk has been very helpful in getting accurate information about ED, and treatments for ED. This has been instrumental in having a successful interaction with a urologist, getting tri-mix, and having the first shot. And with the complicated nature of use and dosing of injectables I've been able to study up on using the medication so that there were few surprises with the first shot. I've made a donation on the home page to express gratitude and help the next guys.

And now to the question at hand:

For people who are not familiar with injections, I think the business of ML vs Units could be clearly shown as a graphic.

Also, I think the different types of tri-mix are confusing, and could be clearer with a graphic chart. As I recall RXBUYERSCLUB.com has a good demonstration of this.

I also notice that all the tri-mix videos using real life models have disappeared off YouTube. One video by a guy called sixguage is particularly helpful. I'm sure there are others out there. If we were to maintain a library of such resources that could help for several reasons- general education about using shots, and de-stigmatizing that form of medication. I know that some people are phobic about needles, and the idea of injecting the schlong sounds particularly painful. And it's not.

From my short time on this list I wonder if the ready access to videos on implants and the lack of videos about injections might pressure men to overlook the less invasive treatment option.

I also think that the information available on managing priapism is confusing. When I ask my uro about this he said "go to the ER." In retrospect, I think he was providing good information, but from a point of view that favored his risk management over less invasive ways to solve the problem.

And I will probably think of more questions as time passes.

The "units" thing is actually very simple and is pretty much as Growinjim explained it in your "first injection is tomorrow" thread. What we use are U-100 insulin syringes. I guess there could be some confusion if you managed to find syringes other than the U-100 standard but I think unit syringes other than U-100 insulin syringes are Veterinary medicine so not likely at your local pharmacy. A U-100 insulin syringe unit is 1/100 of a ml or cc. That's 100 units per ml.

The types of tri-mix's are a bit confusing and likely will continue to be for a good while. The problem is there is no standard for tri-mix. The best explanation I can point you at is found in a PDF pamphlet put out by Wedgewood Pharmacy. I've never done business with them and have no connection with them. The PDF pamphlet can be found here: http://www.wedgewoodpharmacy.com/uploads/ED%20Switching%20Guide.pdf

I don't know what to tell you about the injection videos. I even posted a VERY non-erotic (and unfortunately very amateur) injection video to You Tube and they eliminated it too. I doubt the site administer would want to take on the expense, liability and burden of managing and hosting videos. I agree it's unfortunate some good video's with real users can't be posted somewhere.
