BHRT FOR MEN

Testosterone can be compounded in different strengths and dosage forms to meet your patient’s individual needs.  We can also compound with DHEA, Anastrozole, and Chrysin as well as other combinations for men.  Hormones can be compounded as oral tablets, sublingual tablets, or creams, as well as other dosage forms.  We can combine multiple hormones in one dosage form.  Belmar can provide you with prescribing templates to ease the writing of compounded hormone prescriptions.
 
Testosterone USP is bio-identical testosterone that has been approved by the United States Pharmacopoeia and is available as a bulk powder.  The testosterone comes from natural sources and then is purified by a major pharmaceutical company into the bio-identical form.  The term "Bio-Identical” means that the testosterone has the same molecular structure as the testosterone made in the human body and is chemically and functionally the same.  Testosterone is a scheduled III controlled substance.
