At Central Pharmacy, we offer a safe and effective alternative for the treatment of menopause

hor1.gif (2948 bytes)With major benefits to a woman’s cardiovascular health and for the prevention of osteoporosis, not to mention prevention of vasomotor symptoms, the reasons for taking hormone replacement therapy are greater than ever before. However, despite the evidence, 20% of women given a prescription for conventional hormone replacement therapy never fill the prescription. Of those who fill the prescription, 20-30% stop taking the medications within 6 months and an additional 10% do not take the medications as prescribed. Reasons for not taking hormone replacement therapy vary among women, however, the most popular reasons include lack of information regarding the risks versus benefits of hormone replacement therapy, menstrual bleeding, concern about cancer, PMS side effects and the feeling that it is unnatural to use hormones. We feel it is unfortunate for women to settle for no treatment at all because of their concerns with conventionally available therapy. The good news is that there are alternatives out there for these women.

A bio-identical hormone is a hormone which is identical to one produced by the healthy human body. For women, these include estrone, estradiol, estriol, progesterone and testosterone. Natural Hormone Replacement therapy offers all the benefits of conventional hormone replacement therapy such as prevention of osteoporosis, reduced hot flashes and vaginal dryness, protection against heart disease and stroke, improved cholesterol, etc. with less risk of unwanted effects.

This lack of patentability equals little profit and therefore little incentive to pursue this fascinating area.


This is where the specialty compounding service at Central Pharmacy comes in. We can compound Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy in a variety of dosage forms and in any strength as required. Perhaps more importantly, we are a resource of information regarding this form of therapy. If you feel that you or someone you know could benefit from our Natural Hormone Replacement compounding services, or would just like to find out more about this growing field, please contact one of our knowledgeable pharmacists. We will be happy to discuss your questions and concerns.
