Compounded Urology Medications Consultation – The Compounding Pharmacy of America

Not All Urology Medications Should Be Treated Equal

Urology: A field of medicine and physiology concerned with the study and treatment of the male and female urinary tract as well as the male reproductive organs.

When it comes to urology medication, at The Compounding Pharmacy of America, this usually indicates erectile dysfunction (ED) treatments, although we help address other urologic complications as well – for both men and women.

Some urology medications are better than others, especially when it comes to ED, male infertility, prostate issues and bladder conditions. Not all men are affected by urologic issues in the same way. Why then, should your medication be any less customized?

Some men respond well to oral dispensing, while others … not so much. There can be unpleasant side effects as well. With The Compounding Pharmacy of America, you have several options in the treatment of erectile dysfunction and other issues that affect urologic health.

What Is ED?

Erectile dysfunction is characterized by the inability to either achieve or maintain an erection firm enough for sexual activity. While most men will experience erectile problems at some point in their lives, this does not necessarily mean that they will develop ED. Officially, ED is only diagnosed when the failure to achieve or maintain an erection becomes a recurring pattern in one’s sexual experiences.

How Common Is ED?

ED is estimated to affect the lives of more than 30 million Americans. However, the true prevalence of ED is difficult to estimate, as many men never report their symptoms or seek treatment of ED. This is usually due to the misguided stigma attached to the condition.

Realizing that erectile dysfunction is a highly common, highly treatable condition is the first step toward getting the medical and pharmaceutical help you need.

ED Prevalence Statistics

If you believe you’re suffering from erectile dysfunction, you’re not alone, no matter your age. Here are some stats that will give you an idea of how common this condition is:

  • By age 40, approximately 40% of men report recurring ED symptoms.
  • By age 70, the rate of ED prevalence increases to 70%.
  • Extreme cases of ED, characterized by a complete inability to have an erection, are seen in 5% of men aged 40, and 15% of men aged 70.

Recent research has shown that ED isn’t just a problem that older men face. A study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that one-quarter of men seeking male sexual dysfunction treatment are under the age of 40.

What Causes ED?

ED symptoms often appear to develop out of the blue and without obvious cause. In reality, however, the source of ED symptoms can usually be traced back to physical and environmental factors lurking just below the surface.

An erection occurs when blood flows into two chambers within the penis called the corpora cavernosa, so medical conditions that affect blood flow in the body often manifest as the symptoms of ED.

List of Common ED Causes

A number of factors could be behind someone’s inability to get or maintain an erection. The list of causes included, but is not limited to:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Prescription medications
  • Tobacco use
  • Poor diet
  • Advanced age
  • High blood pressure
  • Alcohol use
  • Blocked or clogged blood vessels
  • Hormonal changes

Psychological factors also play a role in many cases of ED. For example, a common symptom of depression is a diminished sex drive and difficulty achieving arousal.

Those suffering from anxiety and stress disorders are also at great risk of developing ED, as the stress of sexual activity can trigger an emotional response that makes achieving an erection extremely difficult.

When deciding on a comprehensive erectile dysfunction remedy, your doctor will take every variable into account, with the goal of identifying and treating the problem at its source.

What Are the Signs And Symptoms?

It’s important to restate that ED is not the occasional inability to achieve an erection. Rather, it’s when erection trouble become chronic and interferes with regular sexual activity.

This trouble can range from:

  • Erections that are not firm enough for intercourse.
  • Erections that don’t last long enough for intercourse.
  • A complete inability to have an erection.

ED symptoms that become worse over time indicate an underlying physical cause and should be addressed through the intervention and diagnosis of a medical professional.

How Our Erectile Dysfunction Compounding Pharmacy Can Help

Because erectile dysfunction can be caused by a wide range of medical conditions, top health care professionals are abandoning the outdated one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. Many experts have turned to compounded medications as the most effective treatment method for erectile dysfunction.

There are many drawbacks to mainstream oral ED medications, such as delayed onset of effects, required daily dosing, and the inability of the pills to be modified. Injections of compounded medications, however, begin working immediately and allow health care professionals to administer unique combinations of medications of varying strengths.

A tri-mix, for example, is a highly effective combination of the injectable ED medications alprostadil, papaverine and phentolamine. Each of these medications play a unique role in the treatment of ED. Some patients see the most improvement when taking all three tri-mix medications, while others respond best with just two (bi-mix), or even one.

Injectable ED Medication: Not As Painful As It May Sound

The idea of injecting a substance in such a sensitive area may seem intimidating at first. To some, it’s enough to delay treatment due to fears about the associated pain.

The truth about injectable ED medication is that it does not involve a high level of discomfort. In fact, it’s easy, effective and can be used as a standalone medication or in partnership with other drugs to help restore penile function.

Compounded urology medications for ED can be created with the patient’s comfort in mind to address a variety of sexual dysfunction issues. They can also provide a more private course of treatment, helping restore self-confidence and healthier interpersonal relationships.

Women Deserve the Same Relief that Compounded Urology Medications Offer

Urology MedicationsThe complexities of the female reproductive system and associated hormonal changes can generate a less-than-desirable effect on sexuality. Use of certain medications to treat urologic conditions or chronic pain can be the culprit in female sexual dysfunction.

Women should consider consulting a specialist in alternative pharmaceuticals. The Compounding Pharmacy of America can create female enhancement creams, effective in increasing blood flow to the genital area to boost sensation.

As long as you’re seeking treatment, choose solutions to meet your individual needs, instead of trying generic lubricants that contain dietary supplements or other ingredients that “cool” for the moment but lack in truly addressing the fundamental issue.
