A compounding pharmacist can create customised treatment options for these and many other health issues, including nutritional support to help maintain good health.
Maintain your health with treatments that are customised for you
Working closely with the patient’s doctor, we 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
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.
At a prescriber’s request we 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 minimising the related side effects. Some medications also may be formulated in dosage forms like flavoured troches, which dissolve in the mouth and quickly enter the bloodstream.
Male Hormone Supplementation
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.
Supplementation of the hormone testosterone has been shown to relieve the symptoms of andropause. Of course, not all men are the same – different men need different treatment 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.
