Hormone Replacement Therapy
Having unbalanced hormones can greatly affect your mood, health, as well as your sexual and reproductive function but we are here to help. We offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for both men and women which is created to be identical on a molecular level with the endogenous hormones a person produces. Commercially made products are synthetic and have limited options whereas BHRT is created to adapt specifically for each individual’s body and hormone levels.
Many symptoms that can be alleviated using this BHRT include: Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), moodiness, irregular menstrual cycle, hot flashes, weight gain, infertility, post-partum depression, decreased libido, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and sleep disturbances.
Having children take their medication can be very challenging at times. Many prescription medications pose difficulty for children to take whether it’s the taste, size, or texture of the medicine. We can compound many orally available products into liquids and add flavoring to allow children to be adherent in taking their medicine. An example includes compounded medications for acid reflux such as omeprazole or lansoprazole in a dosage specific to the child’s age and weight.
Caring for our pets can often be difficult when they resist taking medications that are prescribed to treat their ailment. Having their medicine turned into an alternative dosage form and adding flavor can allow the pet to adhere and take the medication as prescribed. Every animal has their own pharmacodynamics and metabolizes drugs differently so we customize medications based on the species and size. Some examples include transdermal methimazole gel for hyperthyroidism in felines and phenobarbital oral suspension to treat seizures in canines.
Each patient with has their own unique skin and we can customize the right dermatologic product to meet the exact specifications the patient needs to provide the healing and relief for their skin. We offer topical creams, lotions, gels, as well as topical lacquers for nails. Some of the conditions we aim to treat include sunspots, acne, psoriasis, eczema, keloids, rash, stretch marks, and nail fungus.
Taking pain medications can have a detrimental long-term effect on a person so we create topical analgesic creams and gels to help prevent this from occurring. Our topical pain medications are put into gel bases which is strong enough to penetrate to the affected area and are customized based on the type and severity of chronic pain a person suffers from on a daily basis. Since this delivery system bypasses the GI tract there are no adverse effects on the stomach, kidneys, or liver. Some of the ingredients included in the creams and gels we make include: baclofen, gabapentin, lidocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine, cyclobenzaprine, amitriptyline, piroxicam, ketoprofen, ketamine, and ibuprofen.
When it comes to anal fissures and hemorrhoids many patients often feel at unease of having the matter treated and the painful problem continues. Over the counter products are very limited and often times don’t treat the issue. We offer compounded ointments that will not only help with the symptoms but treat the problem using vasodilators such as diltiazem and nitroglycerin.
The human skin is the largest organ in the body and is prone to cuts, abrasions, and other trauma so it is very important to take immediate action with the proper treatment. We can create specialized creams, lotions, and ointments containing antiseptics, antimicrobials, and antifungals to help treat the affected areas before it turns into a nasty infection that could be life-threatening. Some of the ingredients we use contain mupirocin, metronidazole, clindamycin, lidocaine, and aloe vera.
