Pharmacy Expert Q&A's
Name: Elaine

I have been on biodentical hormones for six months and have not seen much difference. I am on progesterone 50mg/ML cream twice aday also testosterone cream 5mg which was changed to 7.5mg Twice aday with little change. I am also low in cortisol evening and night and DHEA which I haven't been given because the pharmacist said they were minimal although they showed up as low. I am ready to stop taking them as I am so frustrated, I thought you might have some answers for me. Thanks!!!

Thank you for your inquiry. In order to provide a more detailed response, we need more information about the symptoms you are experiencing. In other words, what do you mean that the hormones haven't made a difference? DHEA is important, since it is an androgen precursor. Low levels are associated with autoimmune disease, fatigue, low energy, and the aging process. We recommend supplementing with DHEA to get into a mid-normal range. If you would like to set up a consultation with one of our pharmacists, we would be happy to fully evaluate your current situation and make recommmendations for you to discuss with your physician. To get started click here or post this in your web browser.

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. To participate in the “Patient Empowerment Program”, please fill out the women’s or men's history consultation form which can be located from the link above or directly at the following link and 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.
