United States

In the United States, millions of women (and many, many men) depend on compounded hormones to live normal, productive, healthy lives. Their first-hand stories speak directly to the power of this important therapy. As the FDA considers removing access to compounded hormones, their voices must be part of the conversation.

“Prior to using compounded thyroid, my body was a wreck. This medication saved me.”

Compounded thyroid medicine leveled off my medical swings and significant health issues. I depend on them and am grateful to my doctor and my Community Compounding Pharmacy’s expertise in the work they do for re-establishing and enhancing my quality of life.
Please DO NOT RESTRICT BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONES! The AMA version of thyroid meds absolutely does not work for me!

“I feel like I am not limited by my age because of my Hormone Pellets”

My story isn't like most women, that suffered a great deal before receiving the help they needed. I was privileged with the knowledge of bio-identical hormones before entering into menopause. I began right away with hormone replacement as my blood levels began to show I was becoming hormone deficient. I was also started my mother on them around the age of 60 year old she was complaining of Hot flashes, night sweats, moodiness, loss of libido, and memory loss. I have been so thankful for easing into this phase of life with no symptoms. I can tell you if my choice to receive my hormone pellets were taken away, I would be completely devastated. Here is a picture of my mother "80" and myself "58" Hormones keep us feeling vibrant. Thank you Solutions Pharmacy for our hormone pellets.

“I have been using compounded hormones for over 20 years”

Around age 50 I started experiencing signs of menopause. As an educator, I needed relief from hot flashes and mood swings. Desiring to avoid the mainline pharmaceutical route, which I didn’t trust, I learned about compounding pharmacies. Since then I have been taking compounded hormones especially designed for me. Several years ago I thought perhaps I could stop and change to pharmaceuticals… what a terrible mistake, my reaction was severe and very uncomfortable. Compounding hormones have been a godsend for me as I do not experience hot flashes or severe mood swings and I have experienced no side effects!

“Really positive experience with compounded hormones”

I'm an older than middle-aged woman, single, living in Los Angeles who has been in perimenopause or menopause for at least 10 years. As my state and symptoms have evolved, so has my treatment, and at various points in that journey, the ease of navigating significant emotional and physical hurdles has been supported by a compounding pharmacy. Hormones are so delicate and nuanced, and recalibrating my body's needs has been a collaboration between myself, my doctors, and the pharmacies through which they procure my medication. Compounding pharmacies provide bespoke solutions to individual needs. Please allow their work to continue as is.

“Compounded testosterone cream gave me my life back”

I have multiple autoimmune conditions with awful symptoms and had been failed by the medical community for years. I finally found a functional practitioner who has helped me tremendously. I went from very weak and very low energy to be able to function with normal energy for my age. One of the important components of my treatment plan includes hormone replacement therapy. My testosterone was extremely low when tested (my regular doctors never tested, thankfully my functional practitioner had the insight to test), and compounded testosterone cream is essential to helping me keep my energy up and give me a much better quality of life.

“I am so very grateful for hormones compounde and based on my blood test”

Prior to discovering hormones compounded based on my blood test, I was prescribed a medication that a 6 foot 200-pound man would also be given. I’m 5 foot four and I weigh 138. The medication, as so many of them do when you hear the commercials, carried a string of suicidal and side effects as bad as or worse than what I was experiencing. I took it and had all the terrible side effects and none of the relief. Due to this, my husband and I sought natural remedies, rotating through suggestion after suggestion every six months. Nothing worked. I could not sleep and be so exhausted I ended up causing a car accident. Although a friend suggested bioidentical hormones compounded specifically to my blood test years before, we didn’t think we could afford it because insurance doesn’t cover it. However, the accident caused increased anxiety on top of not sleeping and zero energy, so we decided to sacrifice other expenditures so that I could try compounded hormones. They worked! My compounded medicine provides the specific amount I need based on a fresh blood test every quarter. Since we all have different needs genetically ideally every medicine we put in our body would be dispensed this way. My quality of life is back to normal (which is great) after 10 years of struggling. Removal of this option is detrimental to my health and I sincerely ask you to consider my life experience because if genetics play a factor, and I believe they might, my descendants are going to need this. I remember a precious great aunt, my grandmother‘s best friend, who struggled so severely and ended up dying of dementia and I wonder what difference a compounded medication could’ve made in my lovely Aunt Nancy’s life had the in-depth blood test and compounded medication technology been available. There was nothing they could do, but there’s something you can do Please protect the future of this balanced medication disbursement, which has been a tremendous blessing to our family through my healing. And please contact me if I can be of further assistance. I can be reached through Triangle Compounding Pharmacy Cary North Carolina. Sincerely, Connie C Johnson

“I’m using compounded hormones.”

Since I’ve started using compounded hormone therapy I’ve overcome insomnia and started sleeping well. I feel much less stress in my life and the hormonal roller coaster is over. I don’t think I could function in life very well without compounded hormone therapy.

“Early menopause due to hysterctomy”

I suffered for 10 years with premarin and other pharmaceuticals. Thankfully I discovered a doctor who tested my hormones and put me on compounded bio-identical hormones. It saved my life. I have been on them now for over twenty years. I have no side effects. I am 62 years old and healthy and have NO health issues because of this.

“Insomnia after menopause”

I take a compounded progesterone capsule every night. I literally cannot sleep without it. I have tried or sometimes I run out out of it before I remember to get the refill called in. I am always sorry when I do that. My quality of sleep is so bad without it, it is difficult to function. Please don't take this away. I have tried a standard progesterone prescription, and it did not work for me. It is a pink capsule, Prometrium. It turns out I was having a reaction to the pink dye. That is real. I get to take a non-dyed compounded progesterone capsule and it helps me instead of hurts me!!

“Been taking ebht for a number of years”

Recently, after taking hormone replacement for a number of years, I went off them to see if it would impact some blood levels that looked wonky to my doctor. Not only did it NOT impact those levels, but it also made me literally crazy with hot flashes that were out of control, depression, mood swings, and breakouts. I was a mess.

Recently, I returned to my hormone replacements and feel so much better.

For me, taking synthetic hormones was not an option. Without compounded hormone replacement therapy I would suffer. As medicines go, this has been a Godsend. I guess I don't understand why the FDA would want to limit this possibility to MILLIONS of women who don't want to put a synthetic substance in our bodies and prefer a hormone pre-made for us specifically.

“Menopause Hell”

I had horrible menopause symptoms where I was getting very little if any sleep at night. My MD prescribed me a compounded hormone cream that nearly eliminated my symptoms. I also have a thyroid condition and have taken numerous different medications for it. The synthetic thyroid medications are like taking nothing at all and the Nature Throid that worked the best is no longer available. I now take a compounded medication for it. My only complaint is that these should be covered by insurance.

“I’m in peri menopause and started using compound progesterone”

Starting the compound progesterone changed my life for the better. It stopped all my symptoms within 2 weeks of using it. I was about to become crazy with the symptoms of depleted progesterone, I could sleep for days. Headache, body ache, heavy bleeding periods that caused anemia, losing hair, and skin problems. Anxiety and panic attacks. All of that succeed after I started using bio compound progesterone. I’m a new person. Before it, I tried synthetic progesterone that almost killed me with high blood pressure and did help with the symptoms at all. Please do not ban bio progesterone, the benefits of using it are higher than any harm it can cause.

“Post - hysterectomy at age 43”

I had to have a hysterectomy and remove both ovaries due to concerns of cancer. I have never been able to take synthetic hormones (birth control, etc) because they give me migraines. In taking my compounded bio-identical hormones, my provider can work with me and help achieve levels that are therapeutic for me and don’t cause headaches. They have helped me tremendously.

“15 years and it makes a difference!”

I needed hormone replacement therapy at age 42. I tried a few regular prescription options but they did not relieve my symptoms. My doctor suggested compounded pharmacy and it made ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

It is evidenced by blood tests and relief of symptoms.

Please don't take this option away from those of us who need it!

“Hormone replacement”

My doctor prescribed my compound to me about 8 years ago … it is a hormone replacement, I had a hysterectomy at age 32 because of endometriosis I had tried several hormone pills and nothing was working I had terrible mood swings, extremely agitated, and just all around felt horrible. When I started my compound I felt a huge change in all of that it took about 4 months but I started feeling better inside and out… when I had my gallbladder removed it was very hard for me to digest pills I was so happy to have a compound…

“I've used compounded bio-identical hormone replacement”

... therapy for almost a year and it's changed my life! Postmenopause, I was experiencing heavy monthly bleeding. My OB/GYN performed a D&C to remove a uterine cyst. It helped for only one month and then the bleeding started again. She suggests a hysterectomy! That seemed like a big (and expensive) leap, so I consulted with a nurse practitioner who suggest bio-identicals. What a huge change in my life! The bleeding stopped ... and so did my depression, lack of energy, and brain fog. Please don't take away compounds - they help SO MANY PEOPLE.

“menstrual migraines”

For years, I suffered from terrible migraines with my monthly cycle. Every month the headache would start and last for 7-10 days. They were relentless and affected my quality of life. We knew the headaches were hormone-related, so I tried commercially available estrogen patches. The headaches would always get worse. Come to find out, estrogen was not the hormone I needed more of, it was Progesterone. I saw an integrative medicine provider who suggested I try a compounded Progesterone, in a dose personalized for my body. I began compounded Progesterone and immediately, the headaches got better. Compounded Progesterone decreased my monthly migraines, and my productivity at work, and my mood returned to normal. I was able to stop several other medications because I no longer experienced weeklong headaches every month. Progesterone balanced my hormones and I got my life back! Please do not take this valuable form of medicine away from American women. We need Compounding Pharmacists to be able to continue to compound hormones for us. We will fight to keep our hormones personalized for us as commercial hormones do not offer women the doses their bodies need.
