Custom compounded hormones allows for precise dosing and potency, in a formulation tailored to individual needs. It also allows for making finer adjustment over time compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, which is typically only available in a few standardized doses and formulations. Most of the hormones in compounded creams are FDA approved. But because the prescription is individually tailored for a specific patients' need, each individual prescription cannot get FDA approval.
