Peyronie's Disease Vitamin E

Peyronie’s disease sometimes resolves by itself; in milder cases, doctors might recommend Vitamin E and other pills, but they don’t tend to do much.

The next step up in Treatment of Peyronie's Disease is injection of a drug called Verapamil, which sometimes helps, though it is not approved by FDA for Peyronie’s disease. And for severe and otherwise intractable cases, surgery can “tighten up the side opposite the curve,” to make straight it out.

Vitamin E has shown guarantee for limiting fibrosis in tissue culture models of Peyronie’s disease, but it has not every time demonstrated benefit in patients with this disorder. Traditional management including oral and inject able therapies is recommended for all patients for at least one year, because many cases of Peyronie’s suddenly resolve. Surgery is held in reserve for those men who do not respond to conservative treatment after one year and whose disease avoid them from having intercourse. Vitamin E, in doses of 400 to 800 IU every day, is a standard but unverified treatment.
