Compounding is like baking a cake from scratch. First, you have to have all of the right ingredients. Then you have to combine them in the correct order and in the correct amounts. Next, proper mixing of the ingredients ensures that the batter is uniform throughout. Finally, the cake is made into its final form (by baking) and the final touches (icing) are added to make it look just right.
At Collier Compounding we prepare medications from “scratch.” We take bulk ingredients and measure them very carefully to ensure the correct strength. Next, those ingredients are used to make custom creams or gels or placed into capsules or used to form suppositories. The final preparation is then packaged so that it may be easily used by the patient.
In essence, a compounded medication is like a personalized cake made for a specific person…You!
What Services Are Offered At Collier Compounding?
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness, decreased energy and libido – These are just some of the symptoms that millions of women deal with on a daily basis. Some think, it’s just part of life, but really it doesn’t have to be that way. Proper hormone balance can help reduce or eliminate these symptoms and get you back to feeling like yourself again.
At Collier Compounding, our expertly trained staff can help you navigate through the complex world of hormone balance. We understand that no two patients are exactly alike, so we take a customized approach to women’s health and address the individual woman’s concerns and symptoms in a one-on-one setting that makes the patient the focus.
Our method includes the use of a saliva test that will give us a clear picture of what your hormones are doing in your body. We then take the results of your saliva test and the symptoms you are experiencing and discuss with you where the imbalance is occurring and what our plan is to help correct that imbalance. For more information about hormone saliva testing, read our article, “What is a Saliva Test?”
We also believe in using a team approach when it comes to treating a patient and will communicate our plan to your doctor so that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goal. We rely on your physician’s approval before we can compound your prescription.

Guys often have trouble admitting something is wrong. Not you, but those other guys, right? In no area is this a more common occurrence than when it comes to health concerns. Sometimes guys don’t want to admit they’re getting older or that they just don’t feel the same. As men age, they can experience symptoms like decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, depressed mood, and fatigue. Rather than accepting this as the “new normal” let’s see what can be done about it!
Low testosterone is often a common cause of these symptoms, however, at Collier Compounding we understand that these symptoms can also be caused by imbalances in other areas of men’s hormone health. To learn more about the complete male hormone panel, click here.
We offer a unique consultation designed for men that may be experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance (also known as Andropause). We typically use a saliva test to take a complete look at your testosterone and some other related hormone levels to get a clear picture of where you are. We can also provide a recommended lab profile list to take to your doctor if you prefer to complete labs in your doctor’s office. Once we receive your lab values, one of our expertly trained pharmacists will meet with you to discuss your test results and the symptoms you’re experiencing.
Following your consultation, our pharmacist will develop a recommendation for your doctor to review. We offer multiple dosing options for different therapies to treat male hormone imbalance including Testosterone therapy and erectile dysfunction. Once approved by your doctor, we can get you back on the road to balance.
