Customized Options For Low Testosterone

Rx3 Compounding Pharmacy challenges a common misconception men may have about hormone replacement therapy: that it is strictly for women. In fact, many men could benefit from testosterone replacement therapy to combat common health issues men experience. Unfortunately, many men dismiss these issues as inevitable signs of aging. In reality, hormone therapy may help men live more youthful, energetic lives, and slow down those “inevitable signs of aging”.

In recent men’s health research, many men reported several common physical and emotional symptoms often attributed to aging, including:

  • Decreased libido
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Decreased strength
  • Decreased stamina
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep disorders
  • Depression and Anxiety

These are all potential symptoms of andropause, or male menopause, a condition marked by a decrease in testosterone levels, or an increase in estrogen levels. These symptoms may respond favorably to male hormone replacement therapy.

Male Sexual Health

The prevalence of moderate Erectile Dysfunction (ED) in the United States appears to be about 20% in the total adult male population, 30%–50% in those aged over 40, and greater than 60% in men older than 70. The saying goes that ‘Erectile Dysfunction’ is Endothelial Dysfunction’ where ED is explained by failings in the cardiovascular system.

Off-The-Shelf Testosterone Supplements Offer Limited Relief

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 do not take into account the user’s individual needs.

We can also compound medication into a dosage form that is easy for you to use, such as topical creams, gels, lotions, capsules, or flavored sublingual drops and troches (lozenges).
