“I have been on bio-identical hormones it worked...”
I need them, I have had a hysterectomy in 2002, was on bio-identical hormones worked great then I couldn’t get them.
“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!
“Provider That uses Compounded Medications”
As a provider that has been caring for patients with HRT for over 10 years now, the main thing that is overlooked by most of medicine is how customized hormone therapy needs to be to be effective. The capability to utilize compounded hormones, peptides and HCG has been a life changer for a large portion of my patients as well as a huge cost savings to the patient. I personally utilize a few compounded hormones to improve my own quality of life and continue to maintain optimal health in myself and with my patients or the customizable compounds. Medicine is about improving our patients lives, NOT improving the pocket books of Big Pharma or bureaucrats.
“Relief from hot flashes!”
I was severely afflicted with hot flashes for 5 years. I tried every herbal/dietary approach you can imagine with no relief. It was greatly affecting my sleep, waking me every 1-2 hours throughout the night. I was beginning to feel very depressed and hopeless. I finally started on the bio-identical hormones in January of 2020. Over the course of about a year, my practitioner gradually increased my doses until we hit the sweet spot. I finally am hot flash-free. I sleep so much better, and I don't have to carry a fan around with me at work. It is impossible to explain to someone who hasn't lived with the impact of severe hot flashes the extent of the negative effect on daily living. Bio-identical hormones have given me my life back!
“Age 50 Post Menopausal”
2020 began with me turning 50-years old. I work out every day from 3:30 a.m. until 5 a.m. then I would have a cup of coffee with my husband and then he and I would work out together from 5:30 a.m. Until 6:45 a.m. then go to work from 8-5 as an insurance agent. I watched what I ate and never ate sweets. Beginning in March until July I put on 2-5 lbs per day. Without my routine changing. I decided to see a natural dr. & she had me get hormones from Madison drugs, a compounding pharmacy. That along with different thyroid medication and LDN my weight within three months was back to normal. My life and sleep were better. I would not feel the way I do without my hormones from my compounding pharmacy. My story is much more than this short synopsis but this should do. Please don’t take my choice of hormone away!
“A HUGE blessing to BIOIDENTICAL HORMONES”
I'm a post pituitary tumor patient. For years I was misdiagnosed. I have Acromegaly (giantism) a horribly painful, degenerating disease causing many underlying health issues along with a shortened life span. My hormones were a disaster and traditional medicine was unable to balance me. Through many many struggles and searching, I found an amazing naturopathic team along with Bioidentical hormone therapy to help my health challenges. With treatment, I'm able to sleep and function to the best of my ability with my underlying limitations. I didn't tolerate traditional hormones. I have a clotting issue and many sensitivities to medications. A compounded medication is a safer better fit for me. I am forever grateful for Bioidentical treatment and the precise nature along with purity that is currently available to me. I pray this doesn't change!
“Nothing else worked!”
Bio-identical hormones bring balance to my physical and emotional health. I feel safe with my compounded hormones that are made especially for me. When I was in the midst of perimenopause the physical symptoms felt erratic and would stop me from being able to live my life without worry. I tried over-the-counter products and then prescribed meds, but they didn’t seem to be working well. I felt trapped between feeling “medicated” and feeling as though nothing was working at all. My doctor suggested compounded bio-identical hormones and I have been on them ever since. I am now past menopause and remain on the hormones and will likely stay on them for a few more years. My bone density scans have been at the top levels of good bone health. I believe that this can be attributed to my continued overall good health and ability to live an active life while taking my bio-identical hormones.
“My bioidentical hormone treatment has changed my life for the better!”
After spending most of my adult life in psychotherapy I met a new physician that asked me if I'd ever had my hormones checked...I had not. After the blood work came back it was like everything made sense. I had zero testosterone in my body which led to many emotional issues that were fixed almost immediately after starting bioidentical hormone therapy. I could sleep, I had an appetite (also a major issue), I didn't cry at every commercial on TV. I felt normal! And have continued to feel empowered and in charge of my health since this discovery. The issues around getting my hormones covered by my insurance were such a hassle and of course no coverage. I feel this therapy if supported by the government and insurance companies could save so many from misguided help to their issues. It would create havoc on my body if they were longer available to me. The FDA will approve cancer-causing ingredients in almost everything we consume and now this? If regulated through a doctor, blood work done regularly, this therapy could honestly change our world for the better. Not only will I do anything as far as testifying in front of the FDA but would also like to be a part of making hormone therapy more accessible to Americans. It's not just for menopause....it's LIFE!
“I use replacement hormones to assist me in living the best quality life I am able to.”
Compound hormone therapy has helped my quality of life. I am thankful for the benefits it has allowed me to have.
I have a pacemaker and atrial fib and am not able to take FDA-approved medications for my male balance of hormones.
“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!!
bio-identical hormones has solved the problems of night sweats & provided better overall health for me without the expected side effects of non-bioidentical.
“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.
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.
