Compounding allows your physicians and pharmacists to meet the specific needs of patients. It offers options to those patients who may have difficulty taking or responding to commercially available medications. Some people are allergic or sensitive to preservatives and dyes, or are non-compliant to standard drug therapy. Others may have a hard time swallowing a pill, or react adversely to a medicine’s taste. Compounding allows physicians to customize therapy for each patient. At Modern Medicine Rx, compounding pharmacists will work closely with you and your physician to prepare medication in a dosage form that meets your needs.

Topical Preparations

Creams and gels can be formulated to provide high local concentrations of medications at the site of application (i.e. NSAIDs for joint pain, morphine mouthwash for radiation mucositis) and for trigger point application (i.e. combinations of medications for neuropathic pain). Research indicates that topical analgesics create an efficacious option for adjuvant drug therapy with minimal risk of significant systemic absorption and drug-drug interactions. For example, topical administration of NSAIDs offers the advantage of local, enhanced drug delivery to affected tissues with a reduced incidence of systemic adverse effects, such as peptic ulcer disease and GI hemorrhage, seen with oral formulations.

What are Hormones?

Hormones are regulatory substances produced by the body to stimulate a specific effect. An example is insulin, which functions to open the cells for receipt of glucose. Ultimately, hormones determine how the cells and organs work.

What is Hormones Replacement Therapy (HRT)?

Compounding pharmacists at Modern Medicine Rx can create customized HRT that closely mimics individual patients’ optimum natural hormone levels. With natural, customized HRT, patients can mitigate the symptoms associated with menopause and other hormonal imbalances, while minimizing side effects and risks associated with synthetic hormones. With bio-identical hormones, doses can be easily adjusted and fine-tuned to control symptoms and provide long-term health benefits.

Hormones perform a vast array of complex functions in the body. When hormone levels are deficient or imbalanced, people can suffer unpleasant symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has many benefits for women (and men) suffering from hormone imbalances and deficiencies.

For example, HRT can help:

  • Relieve dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation)
  • Relieve pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Control mood swings
  • Treat infertility
  • Relieve fibrocystic breasts
  • Control weight gain/water retention
  • Relieve hot flashes and night sweats
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Improve concentration and memory
  • Improve skin elasticity
  • Restore vaginal lubrication
  • Aid in bladder control
  • Increase energy and vitality
  • Decrease incidence of urinary tract and vaginal infections
  • Guard against heart disease
  • Decrease bone loss (osteoporosis)
  • Raise good cholesterol (HDL)
  • Improve blood flow

Western medicine has tended to treat hormone imbalances and deficiencies with doses of synthetic hormones. Although they are similar to the hormones that occur naturally in our bodies, synthetic hormones are chemically and structurally different than human hormones. For these reasons, synthetic hormones can cause undesirable side effects (such as fluid retention, nausea, breast tenderness, blood clots, headaches, leg cramps, irritability, and depression). The body may also take longer to eliminate them.

Bio-identical hormones, on the other hand, are chemically identical to the hormones produced by the body. For this reason, they produce few unwanted side effects when taken in appropriate quantities and ratios. They are also easily eliminated from the body.

HRT for Men

PracaSil™ Plus is a combination of various ingredients may be combined and may help in the treatment of scars. The beneficial effects of PCCA’s base, Praca-Sil™-Plus have been published for the first time in the December 2014 issue of Dermatology and Therapy. The article, titled “Case Series: The Effectiveness of Fatty Acids for Pracaxi Oil in a Topical Silicone Base for Scar Therapy and Wound Therapy,” details the results of several cases where patients used PracaSil-Plus and experienced tremendous improvements in their scars. Improvements were seen at the end of the study period.
