Bioidentical Hormone Replacement



Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy involves the replacement of the bodies naturally recognized hormones. The use of hormones identical to the bodies is crucial in terms of safety and effectiveness. While bioidentical hormones have widespread, beneficial effects, synthetic agents pose significant, well-documented risks. At Maida Pharmacy Compounding and Wellness we only compound with bioidentical hormones.

Premenopause, Perimenopause, and Postmenopause
Menopause is a natural part of every woman's life, however, not all women experience menopause the same. Symptoms of menopause vary from person to person, but they all substantially impact daily life. Although symptoms vary in quality and severity throughout the three stages of menopause, the majority of women suffer from hot flashes and night sweats. Mood changes, sleep disturbances, problems with concentration and memory are common. Sexual function may be affected, as well. Intercourse may become painful, difficult, uncomfortable. In addition, drastic changes to hormone levels affect metabolism, altering body composition and bone density. The goal of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is to alleviate these symptoms and prevent complications by restoring the bodies naturally recognized hormones.

Pain



Transdermal Pain Management
Pain is a complex, yet universally recognized phenomenon. There are a number of conditions resulting in the experience of pain. Often, pain becomes a lifelong struggle. For these patients especially, a multidisciplinary approach has proven to be beneficial.

Transdermal medications - meaning applied topically to the skin - can offer several contributions to your pain management. One contribution is the use of multiple medications, carefully chosen based on your type of pain, in one formulation targeting the underlying mechanisms of pain. A second contribution is the ability of transdermals to act at the site of pain, and related sites, lowering the risk of burdensome side-effects often experienced with oral medications.

Ultimately, a transdermal medication may help you reach goals set by you and your provider. For example, a transdermal may lower your daily dose of other medications; or, make falling asleep easier. An hour of grocery shopping may become tolerable. At Maida Pharmacy Compounding & Wellness, our pharmacists are experts in formulating transdermal medications.

Thyroid Health



Thyroid hormones, T4 and T3, affect nearly every cell in the body, and are crucial for maintaining a balanced metabolism. Despite how vital the thyroid hormones are, imbalances are common. Low thyroid levels, or hypothyroidism, often presents as fatigue, irritability, memory impairment, and mood changes. Other typical signs are hair loss, dry skin, weight gain, and an intolerance to cold temperatures. Typical treatment is with T4, or levothyroxine (brand name Synthroid). Often this is a safe and effective treatment option for patients diagnosed with hypothyroidism. However, there are those who do not feel T4 alone adequately manages their symptoms. An alternative treatment option is compounded thyroid, which utilizes a blend of T4 and T3 to mimic physiological levels of each hormone. Compounded thyroid allows for more carefully adjusted doses based off symptoms and thyroid function tests, than do commercially available thyroid preparations.

Choosing a pharmacy with experience and dedication to quality is always important, but cannot be stressed enough when it comes to thyroid hormone. We offer consultations and thyroid hormone evaluations. Working with you and your prescriber our compounding pharmacists can build a personalized treatment of exceptional quality to help manage your symptoms.
