Hormone Therapy for Men

At VH Pharmacy, we understand that men of all ages face various health concerns, and we’re here to provide customized solutions tailored to your specific needs.

Many men have concerns regarding:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Loss of vitality
  • Prostate and bladder health
  • Aches and pains
  • Fungal infections (e.g., athlete’s foot, jock itch)
  • Hair loss
  • Excessive sweating
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Aging skin

Our compounding pharmacist can create personalized treatment options for these issues and many others, including nutritional support to help you maintain your health.

An essential benefit of compounding is the flexibility it offers in altering the delivery system of medications. In close consultation with a healthcare provider, our compounding pharmacist can develop a dosage form that aligns best with the man’s needs.

While many medications come in standard capsules or tablets for oral ingestion, these must pass through the digestive tract before entering the system, potentially leading to delayed effects or gastrointestinal side effects. With prescriber approval, we can transform various medications into topical preparations such as creams, lotions, solutions, or gels. These topical preparations enable the drug to be absorbed directly through the skin, entering the bloodstream and bypassing the gastrointestinal tract, which may reduce related side effects. Some medications can also be formulated into flavored troches that dissolve in the mouth, facilitating rapid absorption into the bloodstream.

Restoring a man’s natural balance can be achieved through testosterone hormone supplementation, which has shown promise in alleviating symptoms of andropause. However, not all men are the same, and different individuals require varying amounts of testosterone or other hormones to address their unique symptoms. The value of hormone replacement through compounding lies in its ability to tailor the treatment to individual body and hormone levels, ensuring greater precision and a healthier equilibrium.

Don’t hesitate to consult your healthcare provider or our pharmacist to explore compounded medications that can meet your specific needs and enhance your overall well-being.
