Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) isn’t just for women–men can benefit from it too! As men age, their hormones can become imbalanced. Testosterone levels may drop or estrogen levels may increase. These changes can have a negative impact on a man’s health and his overall well-being. Symptoms may include: decreased libido; erectile dysfunction; decreased muscle mass, strength, and stamina; sleep disorders; and mood changes. These hormone imbalances can be corrected and wellness can be restored! Our compounding specialists will work together with patients and physicians to provide a customized BHRT regimen that provides the needed hormones in the most appropriate strengths and dosages to meet each man’s specific needs.

So you want to take the family pet on vacation, but its energy and the confines of the family car are not an ideal match. You go to your vet and she prescribes tranquilizers. Most tranquilizers available for pets only come in dosages designed for larger pets. Compounding can make medicating animals much easier. Our pharmacists can prepare the medication in the exact dosage your pet needs (no more cutting pills). We can also compound veterinary medications into flavored chews, which animals readily accept; so you can medicate your pet AND keep all of your fingers! Meds are available in many forms; including capsules, topical gels, transdermal gels, and liquid preparations, which are formulated to your pet’s needs at the specific request of the veterinarian.
Pain management can be tricky. Oral medication can take at least an hour to begin working, leaving you in pain while you wait for it to take effect. Our solution is topical creams and gels that can be applied at the site of pain. Cream is absorbed through the skin and can provide relief quickly, while a pill is still working its way through the digestive tract. Another benefit to these methods is that many of the side effects associated with oral administration, such as stomach upset, can be avoided with a topical application.
You don’t have to be an elite athlete to be faced with muscle spasms, pulls, or inflammation. Medications that relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and relax muscles can cause drowsiness, stomach upset, and other side effects. Compounding these medications into a topical gel or cream will help patients avoid many of the side effects associated with oral medications, while allowing them the benefit of pain relief.
