Your body is changing
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. A compounding pharmacist can add value by preparing the medication to "fit" the patient with the appropriate dosage strength and form.
The compounding pharmacist, working in triad with the patient and her physician, can start and maintain compounded hormone replacement. Hormones can be placed in a variety of dosage forms including: capsules, topical creams, suppositories and sublingual troches or lozenges.
Benefits of Compounded Hormone Replacement
- Reduced risk of cancer
- Estriol - indicated to be "safest" estrogen
- Metabolites of Premarin R, Estrone, and Estradiol thought to be carcinogenic
- Less potential undesirable side effects than with conventional synthetics
Only approximately 20% of women who start conventional Hormone Replacement Treatment remain on it two years later.
