Hormone Therapy for Men & Women

Hormone Therapy for Men & Women

ScriptWorks is your hormone therapy partner.

As we age, our bodies change. One of the most significant changes is in our hormones, which are chemical messengers that regulate everything from hunger to libido. When women undergo these changes, it’s referred to as Menopause. When men undergo these changes, it’s referred to as Andropause. For women and men, changes in hormone levels can lead to a host of undesirable side effects.

ScriptWorks partners with physicians to re-balance hormones.

At ScriptWorks, we fill hormone prescriptions for Bio-Identical Hormone Replenishment (BHRT.) BHRT uses hormones that are chemically identical to the ones produced in the body, derived from plants. This natural hormone approach allows for customized prescriptions, which promote better results and fewer side effects.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replenishment aims to restore hormone balance through testing, replenishment of certain hormones, and feedback from the patient. Compounding is a relationship between the patient, the patient’s physician, and the compounding pharmacist. They work together to provide customized treatments developed specifically for each patient’s needs.

For more than 20 years, the pharmacists at ScriptWorks have been working with physicians to help patients achieve hormone balance through custom compounded BHRT prescriptions. We fill BHRT prescriptions from physicians, and we also provide physician referrals, counseling on how to take your prescriptions, and at-home test kits to measure hormone levels.

Hormone Therapy Forms

Bio-Identical Hormone Replenishment Therapy (BHRT) is administered through different forms, like creams, capsules, and troches. ScriptWorks coordinates with the physician to customize every hormone prescription to the patient.

Immediate-Release Capsules

Compounded to dissolve without delaying or prolonging absorption, therefore the onset of effect is faster. However, it may require multiple doses throughout the day.

Slow-Release Capsules

Compounded to dissolve over time in order to be released slower into the bloodstream while having the advantage of being taken at less frequent intervals.

Oil-Filled Capsules
Oral Liquid Suspensions

May take with food or right after a meal to prevent stomach upset.

ScriptWorks primarily uses a hypoallergenic cream bases which deliver hormones in a stable, non-irritating creamy dosage form.

We also compound with anhydrous gels and creams to help with stability.

Vaginal Suppositories, popular tiny vaginal inserts, and vaginal tablets are available.

Vaginal Creams are a popular choice for hormones that are prescribed to be delivered vaginally, with or without an applicator.

These creams can be made without any potentially irritating chemicals that might be causing burning or irritation.

Some hormones are prescribed in our anhydrous gels, designed specifically for vaginal applications and stability.

Sublingual troches are either soft gelatin base or a harder polyglycol base. Either can be quartered if needed and are made to be dissolved under the tongue or in the cheek.

ScriptTabs™ are very tiny sublingual tablets that typically dissolve under the tongue within a minute. This dosage form is very popular as patients can get potentially quicker absorption than other sublingual methods.

Commercially available hormones like Testosterone Injection and Human Chorionic Gonadropin. Injections are readily available as are injection kits, instructions and patient instruction videos.
