What is Compounding?

Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Some people have unique health care needs that manufactured medications cannot meet. They need customized medications that can only be made through compounding. Leighr pharmacy can work with Physicians, Veterinarians, and other Prescribers to individually formulate compounded medications that meet the unique needs of our patients. We can personalize medication with specific strengths, dosage forms, and flavors. We can also create medications excluding certain ingredients for those with allergies or sensitivities.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

In mid-life, hormone levels in both men and women decline and can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, irritability, vaginal dryness, and decreased sex drive. Compounded Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is one treatment option that is available to patients. The advantage of compounded HRT is that it can be customized specifically for your individual body and hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones are chemically structured exactly like the ones naturally produced in your body and mimic the same functions intended by nature. Compounded hormones are available in a wide variety of combinations, strengths, and dosage forms. Capsules, troches, sublingual tablets, sublingual drops, topical creams, and vaginal creams are some of the dosage forms that are offered. We will work with your prescriber to find the most balanced treatment course to have you feeling like yourself again.
