Pharmacy Expert Q&A's
Name: etsuko

I am 48 years old and I am in peri-menopause for about one year. I started taking bcp Estrostep a couple of months ago to cope with insomnia and anxiety. Bcp worked like a miracle first month but insomnia is back again. If I do not take Lunesta 3mg, I cannot get to sleep.
will It help if I take progesterone cream again?

Dear Etsuko:

It would not hurt anything to try the progesterone cream along with the Estrostep, and if it works then great, if not stay on the Lunesta and then follow our patient empowerment program, so we can adjust your doses to fit you specifically (not everyone else). We call you for a consultation appt. on the phone, once we get the history form back, we will give you a new suggestion for HRT, in the natural bioidentical variety, and ask you to have your doctor order it from our Pharmacy. We do ship everywhere and accept hundreds of insurance plans for payment of the RX's for only a copay. The insomnia is usually a sign of still lack of estrogen. Here is our 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 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 We look forward to speaking with you.
