Compounding pharmacists can help with many health issues that affect men of all ages.
Many men have concerns about:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low libido
- Loss of zest for life
- Prostate and bladder health
- Aches and pains
- Fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot or jock itch
- Hair loss
A compounding pharmacist can create customized treatment options for these and many other health issues, including nutritional support to help maintain your health.
A compounding pharmacist can tailor a prescription to the exact strength required by the individual patient, and make it in a dosage form that is easy for the patient to use. This may allow the patient to comply better with the dosing instructions, resulting in a more positive experience and treatment outcome.
Unique Dosage Forms
An important benefit is the compounding pharmacist’s ability to alter the delivery system of medications. Working closely with a healthcare provider, a compounding pharmacist can develop a dosage form that works best for the patient.
Testosterone Supplementation (or Testosterone Replacement Therapy)
Your compounding pharmacist can tell you that hormone replacement therapy isn’t just for women – many men can benefit from it too! Recent research has identified a number of common physical and emotional symptoms experienced by men as they age, including: decreased libido, muscle mass, strength, and stamina, impotence, osteoporosis, heart disease, sleep disorders, depression, anxiety.. etc.
Termed “andropause” or “male menopause”, these symptoms are related to decreasing levels of testosterone or increasing levels of estrogen.
Your natural balance may be restored though supplementation of the hormone testosterone, which has been shown to relieve the symptoms of andropause. Of course, not all men are the same – different men need different amounts of testosterone to help address their individual symptoms. The value of hormone replacement through pharmacy compounding is its ability to fit your unique body and hormone levels, resulting in better accuracy and a healthier balance.
