Abstract:  There are many misconceptions about the profession of pharmaceutical compounding and the preparation of bioidentical hormones used in hormone replacement therapy. These misconceptions are unfounded, because compounding is regulated by individual state boards of pharmacy, and compounded bioidentical hormones are prepared only when prescribed by a physician who has made a professional judgment in the interest of the patient. Physicians and the pharmacists who compound bioidentical hormones have not only the right but also the responsibility to be aware of current information published in the scientific literature concerning any prescribed medication.
