Causes, Symptoms, and your Options
Up to 20 million men in the United States are affected at some point in their lives by Erectile Dysfunction (ED). ED can be a side effect from disease such as diabetes, obesity, drug therapy, or from nerve damage following prostate surgery and it usually affects men over 40 years old.
It can also result from low levels of testosterone. It can even be the result of everyday pressures such as stress, anxiety, or just nervousness.
Eastern States Compounding Pharmacy works with urologists and men’s health specialists throughout the Northeast to provide cost-effective treatment options for men suffering from sexual health issues such as erectile dysfunction (ED). In many cases, oral therapy is a very reliable option.
Our experienced pharmacists have developed a number of unique formulas utilizing rapid-dissolving tablets (RDTs) that can be placed under the tongue. Both Tadalafil and Sildenafil are available in this unique dosage form and can be combined with other ingredients that may help.
When oral therapy isn’t appropriate or patients do not respond, Eastern States Compounding Pharmacy can discuss injectable erectile dysfunction therapies with your medical provider. One of the most common injectable preparations is a mixture of three drugs namely phentolamine, papaverine, and alprostadil in varying concentrations. This is sometimes referred to as ‘TriMix’ or ‘Triple-P’.
This combination of drugs is not available in traditional retail pharmacies but must be specially made at compounding pharmacies. The components of these injections have been shown to exert a beneficial effect in causing sustained penile erections in individuals suffering from ED. This medication is typically compounded at dosages that are specific to the requirements of each individual.
As mentioned above, hypogonadism or low-testosterone can also cause ED. This condition has also been referred to as ‘Andropause’. This condition can be treated with topical preparations rubbed into the skin. Low-T treatment has been shown to improve vitality, mood, energy, as well as bone density, and cognition.
Regardless of the cause of ED, Eastern States Compounding Pharmacy can help. Speak to your medical provider to determine the best treatment options for you.
Eastern States Compounding works closely with you, whether you’re a patient looking for more effective medication, or a provider looking for the best solutions for your patients.
