Hormone Therapy


Anyone who has been through puberty knows that hormones have a powerful effect on one’s body. Hormones affect many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual and reproductive function. If your hormones become unbalanced, whether due to menopause, andropause or other factors, you may end up feeling like a stranger in your own skin. However, personalized hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a way to restore balance and help you feel like yourself again.

No two people are alike and Premier pharmacists understand this fact.

A Premier pharmacist can provide a hormone evaluation for the patient to fill out. Our pharmacist are experienced in HRT and may assist the healthcare provider in helping interpret the results of blood serum and saliva tests which measure a patient’s hormone levels. The healthcare provider, Premier pharmacist, and the patient can use the results of these diagnostic tools to help determine a course of treatment which will give the patient the exact amount of hormones her body needs.

Working closely with the patient and their healthcare provider, a Premier pharmacist can help a patient start and maintain a hormone replacement regimen that brings their hormones back into balance and closely mimics what her body has been doing naturally for years. With a healthcare provider’s prescription, a Premier pharmacist can prepare hormones in a variety of strengths and dosage forms, including:

• Capsules

• Topical creams, gels, and foams

• Vaginal creams

• Suppositories

• Sublingual drops or troches

Once the therapy is begun, the pharmacist will continue to work with the woman and her prescriber to make sure the HRT is working correctly, adjusting the dosage if necessary, ensuring that the medication is just right for her body.
