HCG

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) has an FDA indication for use in fertility, but it also has off-label applications which your prescriber can discuss with you. HCG closely resembles another human hormone: lutenizing hormone.

Talon pharmacy used to offer lyophilized HCG products, but the FDA reclassified it as a biologic product. This means compounding pharmacies are not allowed to compound HCG any longer. Sadly, the FDA keeps taking more control of what can and can't be dispensed, limiting your options for care. Your only options now are to get it from three manufacturers and the product is rarely available. We do have the manufactured product in stock occasionally, so be sure to check back with us frequently. Our vials used to come in a variety of strengths from 2500 iu to 20,000 iu, and the sterile powder was reconstituted with any volume of diluent up to the size of the vial. The manufactured product only allows it to come in 10ML vials. Our old method allowed us to provide our patients with a customized therapy that they can start at their convenience. We apologize for any inconvenience this has brought you, remember that you can advocate for yourself by calling the FDA and letting them know how you feel about their decisions. Call 1-888-INFO-FDA (1-888-463-6332). Ask for the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator for your state or region.

Per the FDA regulations, HCG will no longer be compounded by Talon after 3/23/2020. We will still be able to provide it to patients as a manufactured product in 10ML vials. Contact us for more info.

Weightloss & HCG

Human chorionic gonadotropin has been used in weight loss programs since it was first introduced by Dr. Simeons in 1954. It is typically used in combination with a very low calorie diet of around 500 calories/day. HCG is thought to promote retention of lean body mass and decrease appetite during the dieting process, which leads to healthier weight loss and sustainable results.

Because of its structural similarity to luteinizing hormone, HCG is also frequently used to prevent testicular atrophy in men who are undergoing testosterone replacement therapy.

Our pharmacy used to offer lyophilized HCG products, which allows for affordable shipping and longer shelf lives. The vials used to come in a variety of strengths from 2500 iu to 20,000 iu, and the sterile powder can be reconstituted with any volume of diluent up to the size of the vial. This allowed us to provide our patients with a customized diet that they can start at their convenience.

For patients that are hesitant about injectable medications, we used to be able to compound HCG sublingual tablets and drops. It is still possible to get the manufactured product in 10ML vials when product is available. Contact us for more info.
