Compounding medication is the process of creating personalized medications to meet individual needs. At Hill’s Drug Store we are able to create custom compounds for a wide variety of patients & circumstances including – pediatric, dental, sports injury, post-surgical, chronic and auto-immune pain, even veterinary ‘clients’.
There are so many circumstances where a custom-compounded medication is the best fit.
For instance, some people may have difficulty swallowing pills or capsules, and may prefer their medication in a different form, such as a liquid, cream, or even a lollipop. Some patients can not tolerate an oral medication and respond more comfortably to topical/transdermal applications.Some commercially produced medications may contain allergens or may have been discontinued by the manufacturer or may only be available in a dose not suited to your needs. Custom-compounding can be a great option to work around any of these obstacles.
Overall, compounding medication can offer a solution to a variety of individualized medication needs. If you or a family member has experienced any of these medication challenges, please have your physician reach out to us. We would love the opportunity to be a part of the solution!
Don’t forget that we work with local veterinary providers to compound medications for your ‘family’ members from the animal kingdom as well! We can make caring for your pet far easier!

Bioidentical hormones are made by converting natural plant hormone compounds into chemical molecules identical to those made in the human body. BHRT is the science of returning your natural occurring hormones to a healthy balanced state using these bioidenticals to achieve healthy levels of depleted hormones in your system
Women and men of any age can benefit from BHRT if they are experiencing an imbalance in their hormone levels that is affecting their health and wellbeing. Age is far from the only factor in hormone imbalance. Stress is a major contributor. Emotional, physical & environmental stress all contribute to dysfunction. Your body’s response to stress can negatively impact the production of hormones crucial to your vital operating systems.
The long term health of your brain, heart, bones, breasts & energy systems is affected by hormones that your body may no longer be producing in a balanced fashion. Every aspect of our lifestyle affects hormone balance and hormone balance can profoundly influence every aspect of our lives.
Stress comes at us in many forms (physical, emotional & environmental), and can drastically impact our body chemistry. In excess, our lifesaving ‘fight or flight’ hormones will deplete our energy levels and reduce stamina. As your body moves towards a more favorable balance your energy production will become more consistent and your response to stressors will become healthier.
Difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep and an inability to attain deep sleep states are symptoms that can be related to low progesterone levels. Ironically, poor sleep also contributes to further imbalance of hormones. One result frequently reported with use of BHRT is a great improvement in quality of sleep, reduced fatigue and improved energy throughout the day.
Erratic emotional ups and downs, irritability, depression, anxiety, and brain fog are common effects of hormone imbalance experienced by women of all ages. A lack of harmony in hormone levels including thyroid, cortisol, adrenal and sex hormones contributes to these symptoms. Many clients report a return to feeling ‘grounded’.
Estriol and estradiol, two of the estrogens, play a huge role in skin & tissue vitality. Many clients report noticeable improvement in elasticity, firmness, hydration, wrinkle depth and adult acne within 3-6 months. This support is working on internal tissue as well, improving circulation, muscle structure and muscle tissue recovery.
We frequently identify specific hormones such as testosterone, as ‘the sex’ hormones. Most people don’t realize that optimal sexual vitality requires balance of ALL hormone levels. As your hormone balance improves you may experience renewed desire, more frequent desire, improved climax and increased stamina. Many clients also report improvement in overall vaginal health with a reduction in discomfort from dry tissue.
