Viagra & Penile Injection Leads To Erection Nightmare

Danny Harrop-Griffiths, a Welsh singer currently living in Berlin, has been in a hospital for ten days due to a painful, medically-induced erection that won’t go away.

Harrop-Griffiths told PinkNews that before attending a party at a club, he took a Viagra.

He ended up going home with someone that night, a nurse, who injected an ‘erection enhancer’ into his penis.

“I thought, what could possibly go wrong?” he explained.

When he awoke the next morning, the erection was still there.

But it was the day of Berlin Pride, so he put off seeking medical attention and instead went to Pride “with my flatmate’s wine cooler wrapped around my penis and shoved down my shorts.”

He awoke the next morning at 5 a.m. screaming in pain. The erection had still not gone away, so he was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.

Doctors diagnosed Harrop-Griffiths with priapism, a condition that results in a painful, prolonged erection of the penis.

He was told that by waiting more than 12 hours with the erection, he made the situation worse. He now admits, “It’s one of the worst decisions of my life.”

Over the next several days, physicians attempted several treatments to reduce the painful erection.

Using a syringe, doctors tried several times to drain the blood. A plastic nail was inserted into his urethra without anesthesia (“ten out of ten on the pain scale”), but the erection continued.

He even underwent surgery as doctors took a vein from his leg to try and reduce the blood flow.

According to PinkNews, he is still hospital-bound receiving a blood thinner via IV.

“Some days I wake up, and I just cry about how stupid I was, about what I’ve lost, about what’s going to happen to me,” he tells PinkNews. “I don’t know if I’ll ever have sex again.”

“Be careful when you take Viagra, and don’t let anyone come near your penis with an injection,” he warns.

With ongoing medical treatments needed, friends have launched a GoFundMe campaign to help with the mounting medical bills.

The statement on the crowdfunding page shares that doctors believe he may have permanent damage, and give Harrop-Griffiths only a 50% chance of ever achieving a natural erection again.

E-Cig Company Attempts To Sell Vaping Liquids Containing Erectile Dysfunction Meds

We all know how popular vaping and e-cigarettes are these days, especially with young folks.

A prominent e-cig company, HelloCig Electronic Technology, has begun selling vaping liguids supposedly pumped with prescription erectile dysfunction drugs.

They even featured images of the brand name drugs, like Cialis and Viagra, in ads.

First of all, no vaping products are approved to contain prescription drugs.

The Food & Drug Administration’s Commissioner, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, on October 11 noting that “there are no e-liquid products approved to contain prescription drugs or any other medications that require a doctor’s supervision.”

“Prescription drugs are carefully evaluated and labeled to reflect the risks of the medications and their potential interactions with other medicines, and vaping active drug ingredients is an ineffective route of delivery and can be dangerous,” added Gottlieb. “There are no e-liquids that contain prescription drugs that have been proven safe or effective through this route of administration.”

The FDA reportedly tested HelloCigs e-liquids and found tadalafil (Cialis) and/or sildenafil (Viagra) in the products.

According to , the FDA has threatened HelloCig with “civil money penalties, criminal prosecution, seizure, and/or injunction” if HelloCig didn’t recall the products within 15 days.

Not only is it dangerous to put controlled drugs in products folks just buy at will, but think how this could impact young people thinking its “cool” to play with these drugs.

Gottlieb declared last month that vaping among young people has “reached nothing short of an epidemic proportion of growth.”

“I use the word epidemic with great care,” he wrote. “E-cigs have become an almost ubiquitous – and dangerous – trend among teens.”

It’s also worth noting that when folks are vaping, its a kind of casual puff here, puff there. How would you even know how much Viagra or Cialis you’re putting in your system? Next thing you know, you find yourself sitting in an emergency room with an erection that won’t go down.

Folks, there’s nothing wrong with using erectile dysfunction drugs. Just do it safely.

Study Shows Drinking Coffee Makes For A “Stronger” Penis

A new study done at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston says 2-3 cups of coffee a day could keep the erectile dysfunction (ED) doctor away.

Men over the age of 20 who took doses of caffeine equal to 2-3 cups of coffee were less likely to have ED problems than those who did not partake in the stimulant.

Men who were overweight seemed to benefit most. Caffeine acts as a stimulant similar to ED drugs like Cialis or Viagra which kickstart blood flow and cause arteries in the penis to relax.
