Methoxamine is an alpha-adrenergic drug, its unique pharmacokinetics and mechanism of action on alpha-1 receptors lead to consider it, similarly to phenylephrine, as a first-choice drug for treating drug-induced or veno-occlusive priapism. The experience obtained with its use in the management of three cases of priapism lasting over 7 h and one case of sustained rigid erection caused during anesthetic induction are reported.
