When hormonal treatments and bio-identical hormones are taken by capsule or tablet they are dissolved in the stomach and subjected to liver metabolism, hence lower levels circulate in the body. Troches providing transbuccal absorption, do not go through the gastrointestinal tract.
We find that troches are well suited to hormone replacement therapy mainly because of the ease in which ingredients in each prescription can be altered and because of the absorption route. Being in the form of a ‘Lozenge’ that dissolve in the mouth, troches can be flavoured to your liking.
The symptoms of PMS also vary enormously; it may be depression that lasts fourteen days, migraines that last a day or two, abdominal bloating, sensitive breasts or sugar cravings. Symptoms are always at their worst immediately prior to menstruation as this is the time when progesterone is most required. If however symptoms do appear after menstruation, this is menstrual magnification and is treatable, but using a different protocol. As there are many symptoms, both physical and psychological, PMS is treated in many and varied ways – from aspirin to antidepressants.
With the advent of molecular microbiology and the discovery of progesterone receptors, a whole new protocol for the treatment of PMS has evolved. With this advanced medical knowledge and the acceptance of these receptors, treatment should be aimed at ensuring their maximum function. A three pronged attack is required – stress, if present must be relieved, the blood sugar level must be maintained, and finally the appropriate progesterone therapy must be applied.
When your medication is sent out, the label will indicate how many refills you have remaining. When your label reads “No Refills” it is time to get another prescription.
All prescriptions containing Testosterone and/or DHEA have a six month expiry from the date the script was written, even if all repeats have not been used. Most other prescriptions expire one year from the written date – this refers to the prescription’s expiry not the medication’s expiry date.
We advise you order one week in advance especially during holiday periods such as Christmas and Easter etc. It is imperative that you keep a close eye on the available repeats held by us, (which is always indicated on your label) so that when you have no refills left you have enough time to obtain a new prescription.
