Pharmacy Expert Q&A's
Name: Sandy

Question:
I have been taking Estroven for two months now and it has helped me, but lately have been having some stomach problems, bloating, stomach aches, I have been told that Black Cohosh has some side effects simular to this? Could this be causing my problems?? Thank You

Answer:
Dear Sandy:

Sorry for the delayed answer, but I have been ill. Estroven could cause the problems, yes; and the only way you will know for sure or not would be to stop the Estroven for say 1 to 2 weeks and see if the stomach problems go away or not. Then restart the Estroven, and see if they come back. Some women do have a problem with this type of therapy. If that is the case, then go to our patient empowerment program and let us do a consultation with you, and give you a suggestion of natural bioidentical HRT, for your doctor to order from our Pharmacy. We can recommend a sublingual tablet which you would not swallow, and usually does not upset the stomach. Here is the program to follow in the future, see line # 2 or 3:



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 info@bpharmacysolutions.com. We look forward to speaking with you.
