MUSE for Erection Problems
What To Think About
When considering MUSE, it is important to include your partner in your decision.
The medicine may cause irritation for your partner when you ejaculate.
When you use this medicine, your partner should avoid performing oral sex.
It is not known how this medicine may affect a fetus in the uterus. If you have sex with a pregnant woman when using this medicine, it's a good idea to use a condom. And if your partner is able to get pregnant, she may want to use some form of birth control during sex.
Medicine is one of the many tools your doctor has to treat a health problem. Taking medicine as your doctor suggests will improve your health and may prevent future problems. If you don't take your medicines properly, you may be putting your health (and perhaps your life) at risk.
There are many reasons why people have trouble taking their medicine. But in most cases, there is something you can do. For suggestions on how to work around common problems, see the topic Reference Taking Medicines as Prescribed.
Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor if you are having problems. It's also a good idea to know your test results and keep a list of the medicines you take.
