VitaScript is the only pharmacy and nutrition center in the state of Maryland that specializes in compounding custom prescriptions and natural products, wellness and therapeutic nutritional products, along with professional consultation. When standardized treatment protocols fail, we want to help. We understand that commercial products catering to a “one condition – one cure” mentality does not always meet the needs of human variability. By working with practitioners and patients on a personal and individual basis, we are able to address their specific needs. We customize preparations so that the dose and delivery method is appropriate for each unique individual. We choose ingredients that are hypoallergenic, avoiding excessive coloring agents, preservatives, and petro-chemicals. We can adjust doses, add flavoring or make medications that are no longer available commercially.

VitaScript works with physicians, therapist, acupuncturist, athletic trainers, etc. We are devoted to integrating the most recent developments in medical technology with the wisdom of ancient healing traditions. We want our patients to have access to the broadest range of healing modalities that can address physical, emotional and spiritual health. We specialize in creative problem solving and challenge patients and practitioners to bring us their most difficult cases. Please let us know how we can start compounding solutions for you!
