Some men were also given injections of a drug called papaverine, a muscle stimulant that can boost erections.
Diseases such as papaverine, and the tongue: so does this formulation harder erections.
Over the next few minutes, Snyder gave the president amyl nitrite to sniff and injections of papaverine hydrochloride, morphine tartrate, heparin, and, later, a second shot of morphine.

White Poppy capsules, when dried, furnish papaverine and narcotine, with some mucilage, and a little waxy matter.
We chose adenosine to induce pulmonary hyperemia for these serial hemodynamic evaluations, as its infusions provided more predictable steady-states and returns to baseline when compared to papaverine boluses.
We thus demonstrated that in the baboon intact pulmonary microvasculature, both adenosine - and papaverine-derived PFR thermo is approximately 1.5, in keeping with our recently published Doppler-derived PFR measures IMR evaluations of the coronary circulation seek to quantify microvascular integrity by estimating minimum achievable microvascular resistance, a related measure to maximal vascular flow reserve assessment with CFR.
With regards to pulmonary hyperemia, our study demonstrates that maximal adenosine induced-flow augmentations (seen as reductions in T mn) occur at infusions rate of 200 µg/kg/min with equivalent increments in flow induced by papaverine 24 mg.
