How do I use alprostadil safely?

ANSWER

Whether you take the drug as an injection or use a suppository, wear a condom if you have sex with a pregnant woman. Doctors don�t know if alprostadil will affect the baby.

Store the drug in its original container, out of the reach of children. Follow the directions on the label about where it�s OK to keep it. For instance, avoid warm, moist settings (like the bathroom). If you keep it in your fridge, don�t let it freeze.
