|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
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 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.
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
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.
