Maintain your health with treatments that are customized for you
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. Modern technology and innovative techniques and research allow many healthcare providers to work with pharmacists to customize medications, which provide their patients with the benefit of medications tailored specifically for certain needs.
Our compounding pharmacist can tailor a prescription to the exact strength required by by you, and make it in a dosage form that is easy for you to use. This may allow you to comply better with the dosing instructions, resulting in a more positive experience and treatment outcome.
Unique Dosage Forms
An important benefit is our compounding pharmacist’s ability to alter the delivery system of medications. Working closely with your healthcare provider, our compounding pharmacist can develop a dosage form that works best for you.
Many medications, such as some used to treat aches and pains, are commonly available as capsules or tablets. However, medications taken orally must pass through a patient’s digestive tract before making their way into the system, which may delay the effect of the medication or result in gastrointestinal side effects.
With your prescriber’s consent, our compounding pharmacist can prepare many of these medications as topical preparations – creams, lotions, solutions, or gels which are applied directly to the skin. Topical preparations allow the drug to be absorbed through the skin and enter the bloodstream, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract and potentially minimizing the related side effects. Some medications also may be formulated in dosage forms like flavored troches, which dissolve in the mouth and quickly enter the bloodstream.
Our 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
- Heart disease
- Sleep disorders
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 our pharmacy compounding is its ability to fit your unique body and hormone levels, resulting in better accuracy and a healthier balance.
