What kind of pharmacy can fill a prescription for Bioidentical Hormones?
Prescriptions are filled at a special type of pharmacy called a compounding pharmacy. These pharmacies can provide you with any drug from pharmaceutical companies. But compounding pharmacies are able to do more. The compounding pharmacists use pure pharmaceutical grade hormones and prepare it in the dose and form that we prescribe for your individual needs. Your program is customized and personalized based on your symptoms and lab levels. In order to assure an adequate dose and response to treatment, your hormone levels are monitored and adjusted to maintain optimal levels.
In summary, bioidentical hormones are identical in structure to the hormones that your body makes. Synthetic hormones are similar to but not exactly the same as the hormones produced in your body. Synthetic hormones act differently, produce different effects and have different side effects than the safer, more effective Bioidentical hormones.
