Men experience declines in hormone levels similar to those in females, which is known as Andropause. This causes loss of muscle mass, decreased libido, depression and other serious symptoms. Many men could benefit from testosterone replacement therapy to combat common health issues they experience. Unfortunately, men dismiss these issues as inevitable signs of aging. In reality, hormone therapy can help men live more youthful, energetic lives. Boothwyn Pharmacy, our experience, expertise, and personalized service will ensure your treatment exceeds your expectations. We work with patients and doctors to ensure positive outcomes from your specialized treatment.
Replacement is central to the treatment of all facets of Andropause. Testosterone is responsible for the average growth and development of male sex organs and the maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. It is the primary androgenic hormone. The term “testosterone” is often used when referring to numerous synthetic derivatives and natural bio-identical testosterone. Proper monitoring of laboratory values and clinical response are essential when prescribing testosterone replacement therapy.
The physician creates a treatment plan designed to restore the patient’s health based on hormone testing results. The treatment may include a prescription for Testosterone, compounded according to the patient’s specific needs. There are different dosage forms available to assist physicians in their decision making for each patient.
Once you start treatment, be sure to keep your prescriber abreast of your symptoms and if you experience any adverse effects. It may be necessary to retest the hormone levels from time to time, as many situations in life can impact our hormone levels. Your practitioner will be able to increase or decrease your dosages to keep you feeling your best.
As more men learn about the benefits of male hormone replacement, more and more hormonal supplements are turning up in the marketplace. Too often, however, these supplements are the mass-produced, one-size-fits-all variety that does not consider the user’s individual needs.
Working with your physician, we can tailor your prescription to the exact strength and dosage form you require.
Ideal testosterone replacement therapy produces and maintains physiologic serum concentrations of the hormone and its active metabolites without significant side effects or safety concerns. Several different types of testosterone replacement are currently prescribed, including injectable, sublingual and transdermal options.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. It’s the most common sex problem that men report to their doctor. If you have it, you have plenty of company—more than 30 million men in the U.S. alone. Many conditions, like diabetes and heart disease, increase your chances of having ED. Other conditions include obesity, injuries to nerves, excessive alcohol intake, and certain medical treatments, such as prostate surgery or radiation treatment for cancer. There are also medications that can affect ED, such as antidepressants, antihistamines, and high blood pressure medications.
If you have erection trouble from time to time, there’s no need for concern. If your ED is persistent, however, it’s time to call your doctor. See your doctor if you have persistent trouble getting or keeping an erection, reduced sexual desire, concerns about your erections, experiencing sexual problems, diabetes, heart disease, or symptoms associated with ED.
There are treatment options available on the market for ED. However, every man’s body and his hormonal makeup are different and require a unique hormone balance. That’s why more men are turning to custom compounded options for their needs. These compounds can be made in various strengths and dosage forms, including sterile injections, capsules, topical creams, intraurethral gels, and sublingual troches.
