My Experience Of Using Verapamil Injection


HJC shared his Peyronie's story in the comments to our Verapamil injection article. I have moved his story and update with my comments to this section, as feels more appropriate location.

HJC Story (December 7th, 2012)

I start Verapamil injection treatments a week and a half from today. I was feeling conflicted as to whether I made the right decision.

Verpamil personal story

It seemed like I was doing better, with pain only a rare occurrence. My wife helped me take some photographs last night, and I was shocked at the increase in bend, both to the left and down since my first diagnosis this past February. I compared photographs. Both are about 45 degrees. I also took the photographs to provide my urologist with as much information as possible to help him provide the best treatment.

I no longer have any misgivings. I need this therapy and I need it badly. I have located the study that strongly suggests the need to combine Propionyl-L-Carnitine with the Verapamil to have any real chance at seeing results. I already have a supply laid in.

Yes, I'm anxious, but I'm also eager to have another treatment of this horrible disorder.

Wish me luck, brother sufferers.

Thank you for your comment. It is great news that you have started treatment and that you have a supporting wife. Taking photographs is also a very good idea, not only will it help your doctor, it will also help you to keep track of your progress.

Have you considered using stretching device as part of your treatment? The doctors that I have Interviewed to date (more in the process) have all said they advice their patients to use stretching device in conjunction with their medical treatment. Most support using traction device, but for some patients it is not suitable (work or other circumstances) and for those they encourage using vacuum pumps instead.

I wish you all the best with your treatment. Anxious is very understandable but eager is great. I hope you will be sharing your progress with us (you can use the Your Peyronie's Story section for that).

Best regards,


HJC Update (February 27th, 2013)

I just had the sixth Verapamil injection today. We did it without penile block numbing. The injections were a little painful, but no way near as painful as the mental anguish of Peyronie's.

I waited until now to report back to see how things would go. Besides the Verapamil injections, the program I am on includes Pentoxifyllene, Colcrys, Vit. E, and L-Arginine, all prescribed by my urologist. To that I have added CoQ10, Proprionyl L Carnitine, Serrapeptase and Nattokinase.

I asked my urologist about traction therapy. He preferred vacuum therapy, so I switched to that. So far, the downward bend of about 45 degrees has been almost completely eliminated. I had a sharp bend to the left at the base, and that has been lessened. I still do have a bend to the left, but it isn't too bad. I have also experienced a reduction in occurrence and severity of pain.

Conclusion: I would recommend Verapamil treatments along with vacuum therapy. As I mentioned to my urologist, something is working and I am happy to see a reduction in symptoms.

Dear HJC,

This is excellent news. I'm so pleased to hear about your progress. It looks like you are getting the results all men with Peyronie's are looking for.

Regarding your doctors preference to vacuum therapy (VED), did he explain why? Was it due to the location of the scar / bending or his overall experience with VED vs. traction?

Best regards,

    First I want to thank you for all your help to us with this situation.

    I had a sex accident one year ago and have tried everything that is recommended from Mgcl diluted in water to Argan oil rubbed twice per day.

    Last week I was injected with Verapamil first time and I will have this treatment four more times. I have a 45 degree curvature upwards that makes my sex sessions very unpleasant and no climax possible. My penis has shortened from 7 to 5 inches and I am using traction one hour a day at home. Also I am using a water vacuum pump four days per week. As you can read I am really interested in correcting my Peyronie.

    I will be glad to receive any comments from other guys and yours of course.

    Thanks again.

    Dear Paco,

    Thank you very much for sharing your experience with My Peyronie's readers (and for your kind words, I appreciate it).

    I'm sorry to hear about your condition but glad to hear you are doing everything you can to correct your condition. Peyronie's patients often have to try number of treatment options before finding what works best for them. I personally am a big believer in fighting Peyronie's from as many corners as possible and I really hope you will benefit from your combined treatment plan.

    Traction will definitely help you to gain back lost length (if you stick to it long enough). I'm assuming you only doing one hour a day traction while going through the Verapamil injection treatment?

    I wish you all the best with your treatment plan. I hope you will keep us posted about your progress.

    Best regards,
