Algorithm Development

The algorithm (see Figure 2) for titrating common vasoactive injectable agents for ED was derived from a literature review and over 13 years of experience with the initial dosage and management of patients on intracavernosal injection therapy. The author has seen approximately 1,000 to 1,300 patients and the algorithm was developed from experience with those patients. This algorithm is meant to provide a general guide for how to approach dosing and titration of vasoactive injectable agents for patients with ED, but dosing and titration practices may vary from clinic to clinic.
