Urology Compounding Specialists
Compounding for Urologists
Compounding pharmacists customize medications to meet specific patient needs, and can be prepared in any strength and dosage form necessary to insure efficacy and compliance.
Working with the urologist, our team of highly trained compounding pharmacists and pharmacy technicians can formulate almost any medication you or your patient may require.
Compounding a medication that is custom tailored to the patient’s specific needs gives the physician and the patient an option for a medication that may not be available commercially.
How compounding can help you and your patient
Impotence is the inability to develop or sustain an erection satisfactory for sexual intercourse. Though Prostate Cancer is not a cause of Erectile Dysfunction, treatments for the disease can cause the problem.
- Surgery: to remove the entire prostate gland
- Radiation Therapy: whether by external beam or by radioactive seed implants
- Cryosurgery (freezing cancerous tissue)
How is Erectile Dysfunction treated
One form of treatment is injection of medication prior to intercourse (intracavernous injection therapy), or Tri-Mix injectable.
Tri-Mix is composed of three drugs, alprostadil (the naturally occurring form of prostaglandin), papaverine hydrochloride and phentolamine mesylate.
How to prescribe Tri-Mix for your patient
We have a base or original formulation of Tri-Mix, however, we can customize the compound to your exact requirements.
Tri-Mix injectable has long been recognized as being quite effective for erectile dysfunction. The studies indicate that 86% of patients achieve a positive therapeutic response.
In addition to the Tri-Mix compound, we also formulate micronized Testosterone topical gel, and Testosterone Cypionate 200mg/ml.
What is it and treatment options
While menopause is a condition with which many people are familiar, there is a condition that affects approximately 20% of men between the ages of 60 and 80 that has a similar presentation to menopause, but is much less talked about. This condition is known by such names as, andropause, male climacteric, viropause, or low-testosterone syndrome. As in menopause, the male’s hormone levels will fall and he will begin to experience negative effects due to these changes.
How to prescribe Testosterone gel, creams, or capsules
Testosterone provides cardiovascular protection by lowering cholesterol, increasing calcium retention and perhaps more importantly for the patient, enhances libido. For men the most common strength is 5% per gram. This is less expensive than Androgel and most cases covered by insurance.
Lidocaine 4% in Ky Jelly
This compound is very useful in many procedures done by urologists.
