Treatments that are customized just 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, allowing you to choose both the dosage and treatment type that works for you.
Choice of Dosage Forms
Although there are several ways to increase testosterone in your system, we have found that most men prefer Portico Pharmacy's topical creams to the other ways of administering the hormone such as injections, gels or patches. 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 and do not require needles or injections either by the patient or a provider. Some medications also may be formulated in dosage forms like flavored troches (lozenges) which dissolve in the mouth and quickly enter the bloodstream.
Your 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:
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 pharmacy compounding is its ability to fit your unique body and hormone levels, resulting in better accuracy and a healthier balance.
