More than 30 million women are menopausal and an additional 20 million are within a few years of this personal transition. As the number of women seeking hormone replacement therapy has grown, so has the mass production of pills, patches, and creams by the drug industry. Still, not all women are the same, and commercially manufactured products do no always account for the unique differences between individuals. There is another option though; hormone therapy designed specifically for your body. Hormone Replacement Therapy is most often used for menopause. Typical symptoms of menopause may include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, low libido, weight gain, irritability, moodiness, and sleep disturbances (see attached symptom evaluation sheet - pdf). Yet any woman who has experienced endometriosis, PMS, weight gain, low libido, or fibrocystic breasts may also need to contact their pharmacist or physician.

Women have traditionally used synthetic estrogen therapy to treat menopausal symptoms and to help protect against osteoporosis. Another option for women needing hormone therapy may be the use of bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic ones. Compounding pharmacists are meeting the needs of peri-menopausal and menopausal women through the use of plant derived hormones that are biologically identical to those naturally occurring in women. No two women are alike, of course, and the value of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is that it can be adapted to fit your individual body and hormone levels. In fact, hormones can be made in a variety of strengths and dosage forms including capsules, topical creams and gels, suppositories, and sublingual troches or lozenges to best suit each patient. Our skilled compounding pharmacists are specially trained to work with the patient and physician to achieve optimum results.

The Compounding Pharmacist Can Assist With:

With the help of a doctor and a compounding pharmacist, a woman can start and maintain a bio-identical hormone replacement regimen that closely mimics what her body had been doing naturally for years. Its your body; why not give yourself the option of customized bio-identical hormone therapy? Should the need for custom medications arise, please give one of our compounding pharmacists a call with any questions you may have.  Email Kim our compounding pharmacist.

Recently the FDA announced it will "HALT" the compounding of hormone treatments that contain estriol.  Estriol is a common and critical component of many bio-identical hormone therapies (including Bi-Est and Tri-Est) that meets the standards that were set by congress.

If the FDA has their way, you will lose this access to vital treatment options.  WE NEED YOUR HELP!  For Further information & how you can make a difference, visit www.savemymedicine.org today.
