Changes in your hormone levels can cause unwanted symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, mood changes, and fatigue. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is used to treat symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances. BHRTs are hormones that are structurally identical to that found in the human body and are derived from a natural source. At Paseo Pharmacy, we are able to compound medications with exact amount of active ingredients with specific doses based on your unique needs rather than a one size fits all approach. BHRTs include but are not limited to progesterone, estradiol, estriol, testosterone, DHEA, Pregnenolone. We are able to prepare hormone therapy in different strengths and dosage forms such as topical creams, vaginal creams, suppositories, capsules. With proper treatment approach, we are able to restore hormonal balance and minimize symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, and insomnia. Men can benefit from hormone replacement therapy as well. With increasing in age, testosterone levels decline and patients often experience decrease in strength, libido, depression, energy. During this time of andropause, the patient’s natural hormone level of testosterone can be restored by the supplementation through hormone therapy.
Based on the physician’s evaluation of the patient along with lab levels, a more accurate and unique compound can be made to give hormonal balance. It is critical to conduct proper lab tests, examinations, and discussions of symptoms with your health care provider to identify the appropriate treatment approach as well as managing your therapy. Depending on the outcome of treatment, we are able to work with your doctor to adjust the dosage if necessary to ensure the medication is just right for your body.
