Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects approximately 49% of Canadian men ages 40 and over. Like the rest of the aging body, the muscle tone of the penis may decrease with age, but ED may be a result of other health issues such as diabetes, low testosterone, enlarged prostate, and high blood pressure. Smoking, alcohol use or even certain medications and psychological factors may also contribute to ED.contact our experts
Commercially available medications to treat ED such as Viagra®, Cialis® and Levitra® are known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors. They work to relax muscle cells in the penis for better blood ﬂow and to produce a rigid erection. PDE-5 inhibitors are not effective in all men, and all men should have options to improve their quality of life ORIGINS Pharmacy & Compounding Lab understands the various causes of ED and is able to compound medications to meet individual needs. There are several custom options for patients: Rapid Dissolve Tablets Commercially available tablets can often take 30 minutes to several hours to start working, but a Rapid Dissolve Tablet can start working within 15 minutes. This tablet disintegrates in your mouth quickly, moving into the blood vessels around the tongue, causing a faster onset of action Transdermal Testosterone Cream Diabetes, ageing, medications and hormonal imbalance all cause low testosterone levels. Testosterone is required by men and women alike for arousal as well as an overall feeling of wellbeing. At ORIGINS Pharmacy & Compounding Lab, we can customize a strength of testosterone that can be applied to your skin and increase your testosterone levels, improving quality of life as well as restoring the sense of desire and arousal.
