Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy is designed to restore natural, healthy hormonal levels and improve overall functioning. Hormone levels begin to decline naturally as people age. Women experiencing menopause often suffer wild swings that trigger severe symptoms that interfere with their quality of life while men may be more prone to low testosterone levels, which can affect their functioning and overall well-being. Our Thousand Oaks pharmacy staff offers personalized solutions for patients who are suffering from hormonal imbalances.
Symptoms of declining or imbalanced hormones can include sexual health problems, nausea, migraines, IBS, infertility, vulvar pain, breastfeeding problems and systemic conditions. Thyroid hormone imbalances can lead to dryness, irritability and excessive weight gain or loss. Sex hormone imbalances can affect bone health, sex drive and heart health. Thyroid stimulating hormone, testosterone, estradiol, progesterone and other hormone treatments are all available to meet your needs. Your doctor may recommend precise testing and specific treatments to restore your health. Our Thousand Oaks pharmacist will work closely with your healthcare provider to ensure the most appropriate testing and hormone replacement therapy possible.
Our Thousand Oaks pharmacist can compound prescriptions precisely to your healthcare provider’s recommendations. Several testing options are available, including blood spot testing for your convenience. We can also compound several compatible medications into a single hormone replacement therapy dose or create easy-to-take dosage forms that make it easier for you to comply with your prescription’s requirements, including topical ointments, lozenges, injectable solutions, lollipops and flavored suspensions.
We take into consideration not only your prescription but also other medications or supplements that you are taking, your body weight and your personal preferences, and we make adjustments based on those factors to ensure the most effective treatment possible. Our Thousand Oaks staff will work with you and your doctor to ensure maximum effectiveness.
You have individual treatment needs, and our job is to meet those needs. Whether you have a systemic condition that is causing hormonal imbalances or your hormone levels are simply too low for optimal health, we can help.
