Compounding for Life’s Problems

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hollyburn Pharmacy compounding pharmacists are meeting the needs of women in perimenopausal and menopausal years through the use of plant-derived, bio-identical hormones. These hormones appeal to patients because they remedy hormonal imbalances with hormones that are identical in molecular structure and function to those produced in the human body.

Hormones can be prepared in a variety of dosage forms including: capsules, topical or vaginal creams, suppositories and sublingual troches or lozenges.

Our hormone compounds include: Estriol, Bi-est (Estriol and Estradiol), Tri-est (Estriol, Estradiol, and Estrone), Progesterone, Testosterone, and DHEA.
