Hormone Replacement Therapy

A very common use for compounding pharmacy solutions, is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).  Hormones affect many areas of your health, including your mood, your metabolism, and your sexual and reproductive function. If your hormones become unbalanced, whether due to menopause or other factors, you may end up feeling like a stranger in your own skin. However, compounded hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a way to restore balance and help you feel like yourself again.
