Compounding for Men

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Men, just like women, can be affected significantly by the decline of their hormones, a change in life called Andropause, or Male Menopause. Testosterone is the main hormone in men not only responsible for secondary sex characteristics, which directly influences sexual desire, libido and arousal, but also affects the brain, affecting mood and cognition, immune health, muscle and bone building. Testosterone levels start a slow but steady decline starting around the age of 30, so the symptoms of low testosterone are not as sudden and noticeable as in women. Testosterone deficiency symptoms presented in men have shown to cause :
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Hair loss
  • Diminished physical or work performance
  • Poor concentration and memory
  • Osteoporosis or low bone mineral density
  • Decreased energy or vitality, increased fatigue
  • Depressed mood
  • Increased body fat
  • Aches and pains
  • Aging skin

Risks of Low Testosterone Levels in Men

Low levels of testosterone are due to the aging process but also the result of medications and diseases. Studies have shown that replacing testosterone levels can often lead to improved outcomes. Medications that have shown to reduce testosterone levels include opiates and steroids. Diseases that affect testosterone levels include cancer, alcoholism, pituitary dysfunction, kidney and liver failure, stress and abdominal obesity.

Aches and Pains

Topical administration of pain medications has been on the rise. Avoiding stomach discomfort, direct delivery to pain receptors, fewer side effects and few drug interactions are just a few of the reasons why. Our compounding pharmacy offers the advantage of being able to create formulations, based on a physician's order that will help address your individual needs. Custom medication compounding offers advantages to the man who wishes to maintain a healthy lifestyle by helping to deal with the common aches and pains that occur due to aging, stress, or an active lifestyle. We are able to accommodate your needs by adjusting the strength, medications, and the delivery system. When your medicine is designed with you in mind, the effects are optimized.

Men's Issues

One of the primary benefits of pharmacy compounding is the ability of your pharmacist to prepare your prescribed medication in the form that works for your body and lifestyle, especially when commercially prepared medications may not have been successful. Where oral medication may be suitable for one person, a topical solution may be best for another. The way in which medication is delivered can make a difference in its overall effect on the body. Some common concerns that we have been able to help men of all ages with through customized compounding include:
  • Hair Loss
  • Fungal Infections
  • Excessive sweating
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Aging Skin
Working closely with the prescribing physician, our compounding pharmacists can prepare your prescription to help treat a myriad of symptoms that make you feel and look your best.
