Dear Dr. Hueseman,
I have been taking bioidenticals for nearly 8 years. I am taking tri-est 1.50 W/100mg p. I switched to a bi-est 1.5 W/100mg p. Because of breast tenderness in one breast only. The breast tenderness continued. I quit taking all, and the night sweats started, after 3 weeks of no hormones, the night sweats were CONSTANT. Can you recommend a new dosage?
Since you are not buying those medicines from our Pharmacy, we would like your business in the future. We do ship everywhere and accept hundreds of insurance plans for payment of RX's for only a co-pay. I would be happy to make a new recommendation for you, but I will ask you to follow our patient empowerment program, which I will now send to you. When you submit the history form with the answers, then please mark it to print and put on Pete's desk. I need to know such things as if you have had a hysterectomy or not, the breast tenderness was probably from too much progesterone and too little estrogen, possibly? I will do a short consultation with you and then give the suggestion.
Here is the program to follow:
To learn more about how we can help you get started on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and feel better through our “Patient Empowerment Program” click here http://www.bpharmacysolutions.com/hormone/overview.asp or post this in your web browser. This program was developed to assist you in getting started on the natural bioidentical hormones. It empowers you through knowledge and education to approach your physician and get the natural treatment you are looking for. We provide physician referrals, as part of our program.
The patient empowerment program is a full in-depth consultation with a consultant pharmacist whereby we evaluate your symptoms, lab work of your hormones (if performed), and any other pertinent laboratory results via phone consult. We then make an assessment and write a clinical consult note that includes recommendations for natural bioidentical hormones that you can provide to your doctor. If you have already discussed bioidentical hormones with your doctor or if your doctor refuses to prescribe them after reviewing our recommendations, we will provide you with a referral to a physician in your area that will prescribe bioidentical hormones.
We would like to help you feel better, and be your compounding pharmacy in the future. We ship all across the country, and accept hundreds of insurance plans for reimbursement.
After you fill out the consultation form, you will be contacted by one of our consultant pharmacists within 2 business days to set up a consultation. Alternatively, to get started you may call 1-800-728-0288 and request to schedule a consultation with one of our pharmacists or forward an email requests for a consult to email@example.com. We look forward to speaking with you.
