In a traditional pharmacy setting the patient presents a prescription written by a licensed prescriber. The pharmacist would then count out your prescription with commercially available medication. At a compounding pharmacy the drugs which are prescribed aren't commercially available. They are made from raw chemical and mixed into a custom made dosage forms made specifically for each patient, as deemed appropriate by the prescribing physician.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement is our main product. For women we compound estrogen preparations in a multitude of differing dosage forms. For men we have Testosterone preparations for those menopausal men who choose to supplement this hormone based on their physician's prescription. We also compound medications for erectile dysfunction also based on a physician's written prescription. For more information click on our BHRT button on our homepage.
We compound such things as Butt Cream made for infants with recurring and/or severe diaper rash to problem pediatric patients who have special dosing or flavoring requirements. We also compound veterinary prescriptions. We have those flavors which dogs and cats like so that administration is eased in this special patient population.

Women undergo midlife changes which maybe subtle in some and more difficult in others. That time is called perimenopause which may start as early as mid 30s, may last from 2 to 10 years and leads to menopause which by definition is 12 continuous months without a menstrual cycle. During this time, Estrogen and Progesterone secretion decrease. The first symptoms are CNS related such as mood swings, sleep disturbance and cognitive changes. During perimenopause, vaginal and skin dryness and wrinkles are common. Finally, when a woman experiences vasomotor symptoms such as night sweats and hot flashes, usually the estrogen production has been cut down in half. During this period, women may also experience water-weight gain. This can be relieved by Progesterone, a natural diuretic due to its aldosterone receptor antagonist properties.
Another hormone affected by midlife changes is Testosterone. With aging, both men and women’s testosterone production also decreases. Testosterone affects energy, weight gain, physical and emotional motivation, muscle mass and not the least, libido. Solutions Specialty Pharmacy also compounds bioidentical Testosterone in a variety of dosage forms for replacement therapy.
Solutions Specialty Pharmacy takes into consideration a person’s general well being and offers consultations with appointment.
