Did you hear about that one crooked politician who was running for Office? He got charged with malapropism of Government funds for his personal expenses.

While a boon for men with legitimate ED symptoms who don't respond to Viagra or Levitra, injectible treatments are significantly more likely to cause a dangerous condition called malapropism, in which an erection doesn't go away, resulting in damage to penile tissue. Doctors counsel patients taking Caverject and Trimix on how to treat erections lasting longer than four hours--for example, a double dose of the over-the-counter decongestant Sudafed may help, Mills says--and when to seek emergency room treatment.
