Precision Compounding Pharmacy Formulates medications that are not available in the neighborhood drug store.
One of our compounding specialties is sustained release oral progesterone capsules, a hormone replacement therapy taken by women who experience insomnia due to menopause.
Although available under the brand name Prometrium, it is only manufactured in 2 strengths, 100 mg and 200 mg, both being immediate release capsules, not extended release.
The problem with immediate release for this particular medicine is that after a few hours, very often the patient will wake up due to the medication wearing off. Our sustained release capsules last for 8 hours, so you enjoy a full night’s sleep with only one capsule. We also compound multiple strengths ranging from 25 mg to 200 mg based on what the physician feels is necessary.
Also, Prometrium contains peanut oil while our compound does not, rendering them completely safe for those with peanut allergies.
Precision Compounding Pharmacy is always available to answer any questions that you or your physician may have and we hope to see you soon !
