What is PT-141?
PT-141 is a libido peptide. It is used to treat sexual dysfunction in women as well as hemorrhagic shock, and reperfusion injury. It was available in a nasal spray until it was discontinued in 2008 after health concerns. It is now available as a substance to use for injection.
PT-141 came from the Melanotan testing that occurred in scientific studies. They noticed what while Melanotan and Melanotan II were successful in tanning skin without sunlight, the side effects were sexual arousal in men and women with erection benefits for men who had erectile dysfunction. In a third clinical trial, PT-141 was shown to enact the lordosis behavior in animal test subjects. It directly changes the chemicals in the brain that turn on during arousal without passing through the blood stream.
How much PT-141 should I take?
For humans the dosage they used in clinical trials was 0.75, 1.25, and 1.75 mg and each provided effective in helping with sexual stimulation of human test subjects.
What are the side effects of PT-141?
Some side effects include an increase in blood pressure, nausea, yawning, stretching, decreased appetite, transient facial flushing, sweating, somnolence, headache, dizziness, dysgeusia (altered sense of taste), hypertension, and skin hyper-pigmentation.
How should I store PT-141?
PT-141 comes as a powder so storing it in a cool dry place works best. But for injection it would be necessary to use bacterial prevention solutions so that the effectiveness is more potent than a water solution. If you plan to inject it would have to be on the spot prior to injection preparedness or it can be administered at a later time. Most studies do not have any information disclosing shot storage or usage.
