How does PearlPAK work?2022-09-21T15:06:19+00:00

Estrogen and other hormones change as menopause occurs, which can change bodily functions and brain function. When naturally circulating hormones change, or are decreased, things like normal brain function and memory can be affected. The PearlPAK is a tailored combination of ingredients to help replenish and balance hormones, to improve body and brain functions.

What is a compound drug?2022-09-21T15:08:34+00:00

Drug compounding involves mixing, combining, or altering drug ingredients to create a medication tailored to the specific needs of an individual patient, and is based on a prescription from a doctor.

Why are compounds not approved by the FDA?2022-09-21T15:08:56+00:00

There are benefits associated with compounding, many of which focus on providing patients with pharmaceutical products that have been customized to fit their own unique needs when standard marketed drugs fail to do so. Compounding primarily occurs in pharmacies by licensed pharmacists. As each prescription is tailored to each patient, the compound has not undergone specific premarket review, therefore it is not FDA approved.

Yes. The process begins with a consultation with one of the CleopatraRX consulting physicians who will determine if PearlPAK is appropriate for your needs. Based on this assessment, they may write a prescription for PearlPAK.

Why do I need a prescription for my PearlPAK?2022-09-21T15:14:13+00:00

PearlPAK contains Estriol and Progesterone. Both drugs are individually classified as medical prescriptions (RX) by the FDA thus requiring a prescription.

Can I refill PearlPAK at my local pharmacy?2022-09-21T15:14:52+00:00

Why might my prescription need to change after 30 days?2022-09-21T15:16:41+00:00

Based on the results of PearlPAK, the prescribing CleopatraRX consulting physician may decide to modify your prescription to meet your adjusted needs.

How do I know if I have brain fog?2022-09-21T15:17:17+00:00

Yes, in most cases. Brain fog can be diagnosed by a physician based on a patient self-reporting their symptoms and medical history. CleopatraRX consulting physicians use telemedicine technologies to diagnose cognitive dysfunction in the same way they diagnose patients in-person. The CleopatraRX consulting physician will ask a series of questions and use your answers to diagnose your condition and create a treatment plan using PearlPAK, if appropriate.

If you are not yet fully menopausal, you may experience changes in menstrual bleeding after starting hormones.
