As men age, issues related to prostate health, erectile dysfunction, low testosterone and cardiac health often arise. Custom Medicine is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life by providing customized prescriptions tailored to the need of each man.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) or Impotence is the inconsistent ability to achieve and maintain an erection sufficient to allow satisfactory sexual intercourse. Erectile Dysfunction is not that uncommon and many men experience erectile failure at least once during their adult life.
The causes and treatments for ED vary greatly, and Custom Medicine will work with your physician to determine the best treatment plan using compounded medication.
For men over 40, androgen hormone production (primarily testosterone) production typically falls by about 1% to 2% per year. For some, this change in hormone levels, now referred to as “Andropause”, can lead to a host of symptoms that can impact the quality of life:
Reduced Sex Drive
Heart Disease and Atherosclerosis
A simple hormone test using blood labs or a saliva test can determine if a man's hormones are out of balance
To get hormones back in balance, deep muscle testosterone injections are available commercially.
However, Custom Medicine can offer medication dosage and delivery options that fit everyone’s situation and lifestyle including:
Transdermal Creams, Gel or Ointment
Transdermal applications are an effective way to give testosterone. With a physician’s prescription, our pharmacists compound testosterone into a gel or cream that allows the medication to get absorbed through the skin. Unlike some commercial formulas, our pharmacists can create the medication and varying strengths to accommodate each person’s individual needs.
Flavored Lozenges or Sublingual Drops
Testosterone drops, or flavored lozenges (or troches) can be dissolved under the tongue or between the teeth and cheek for easy absorption. Using this dosage form may require taking the medication up to four times daily.
Your Therapy Plan
Testosterone therapy has been shown to be quite effective in relieving symptoms of andropause and restore drive, health, potency and a sense of renewed vitality. By following these positive steps to restore normal hormonal balance, many men can regain vitality and zest for life and enjoy their mature years fully and healthily.
Discuss the possibility of having Custom Medicine compound a therapy with your physician. Or, we can contact him or her on your behalf and work together to develop a treatment plan tailored to fit your body and your lifestyle.
