Compounded Prescriptions are mixed from their constituent chemicals by a pharmacist or technician because they are not available in commercially prepared formulations.
Natural hormone products are an example of of drugs that cannot be patented – we make many different combinations of these hormone products to meet individual patient needs.
Compounded Prescriptions are custom prescriptions, made to precisely meet the needs of the patient. An example of this would be high blood pressure medication that is commercially available for adults, but must be dissolved and made into a liquid to give to an infant. We also do custom flavoring of medications to suit the patient.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Our on-staff clinical nutritionists and pharmacists offer nutritional counseling and work closely with doctors to help evaluate a patients history, symptoms and possible outcomes. Testing is a crucial element in any plan using bio-identical hormone restoration.
After meeting with one of our pharmacists, he can recommend a take home saliva panel to collect your sample and mail out to the lab for analysis or you may choose to have your doctor do the testing.
One of the beauties of bio-identical hormone restoration is dosing individualization. Your doctor can order a prescription customized just for you and not what’s just made by a manufacture.
Whether it’s more estrogen, less progesterone and adding some DHEA to the formula, your doctor is customizing it based on your needs.
Many symptoms of peri-menopause and menopause such as low libido, moodiness, sleep disturbances, hot flashes can be greatly reduced or eliminated using appropriate BHRT.
