Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Compounding pharmacists are meeting the needs of peri-menopausal and menopausal women and men (Andropause) by use of bio-identical hormones. These hormones are appealing to patients because they help to mend a hormonal imbalance with hormones that are identical to those produced in the human body.

A compounding pharmacist can tailor a hormone regimen, which mimics what a female’s body has been doing for the past 50 years or so. All women are not the same therefore, a compounding pharmacist can add value by preparing the medication to “fit” the patient with the appropriate dosage strength and form. For male patients, supplementation of the basic hormone testosterone has shown to be an effective treatment for most men experiencing Andropause.

The compounding pharmacist, working in triad with the patient and her physician, can start and maintain bio-identical hormone replacement. Hormones can be placed in a variety of dosage forms including: capsules; topical creams, suppositories and sublingual troches or lozenges. As the patient works with her physician and compounding pharmacist, she can choose the dosage route and strength that is most beneficial and pleasing to her.

Compounding for Dentists

Upon a prescription order, we can compound:

Medications are manufactured in a limited number of strengths and dosage forms that will satisfy the needs of most patients due to stability concerns, and the cost of stocking and distributing numerous formulations of each drug. Using pharmaceutical grade chemicals and specialized equipment not found in most pharmacies, we can compound medications in doses and dosage forms that are not commercially available. We want to optimize the care of every patient. Just let us know what you need!
