Unbalanced hormones can make you feel like a stranger in your own skin.

Hormones have a powerful effect on your body and many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual and reproductive function.

Hormone replacement therapy

Precision in balance, empowerment in health. Hormone compounding brings harmony within.

Hormone Imbalance

A hormonal imbalance can affect more than your mood; it can be responsible for a number of related health concerns, including:

  • Decreased libido
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Hot flashes
  • Infertility
  • Irregular menstrual cycle
  • Night sweats
  • Painful intercourse
  • PMS
  • Post-partum depression
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Weight gain

These conditions affect millions of women. As the number of women seeking hormone-related treatment has grown, so has the mass production of pills, patches and creams by the drug industry. Each woman’s body is different and has its own unique needs, but commercially manufactured products tend to be “one size fits all,” and they do not always account for the differences between individuals.

  • A growing population and longer life expectancies mean more patients experiencing the symptoms of hormonal imbalances
  • By the year 2025, the number of post-menopausal women (older than age 51) is expected to be more than 1.1 billion
  • Nearly 30 percent of the total U.S. population is age 55 and older

The Compounding Advantage

Pharmacy compounding is the preparation of customized medications for patients. The advantage of compounded hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is that it can be adapted specifically to fit each individual’s body and hormone levels. Bio-identical hormones have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own.

No two women are alike, and compounding pharmacists understand this.

Restoring Hormonal Balance: The Role of Compounding Pharmacists in Hormone Replacement Therapy

Working closely with the patient and healthcare provider, a compounding pharmacist can help start and maintain a hormone-replacement regimen that brings hormones back into balance and closely mimics what the body has been doing naturally for years.

The health care provider, compounding pharmacist, and patient can then determine a course of treatment that will give the patient the exact amount of hormones her body needs.

Thanks to compounding, there are customized hormone prescriptions to meet your specific needs – the power of personalized medicine.

OptioRx’s pharmacists are experienced in HRT can assist a healthcare provider (HCP) clinically in the following ways:

  • Dosage Adjustments – Can be made immediately based on patient symptom feedback, and are routinely assessed at each patient check-up
  • Absorption Assessment – Based on lab draws and recommend dosage and/delivery adjustments
  • Follow-Up Assessments – Based on labs and symptom sheet information

Hormone replacement therapy is a team effort.
