Village Green Apothecary now specializes in custom compounding of vitamins, minerals, and prescription drugs. The compound pharmacy offers individualized compounds, which are prepared on a nutritionist’s or physician’s orders and offer several distinct advantages over mass-produced bottled products. The pharmacy prescribes compound medicine to customers in Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Rockville, Md.
Custom Compounding of these vitamins and minerals simplify nutritional programs by providing accurate, tailor-made dosages. By choosing custom vitamins, people will reduce the number of capsules needed daily and eliminate all non-natural fillers, binders, dyes and other possible allergens. The compound pharmacy in Bethesda offers superior quality custom vitamins, which are easy to order and most are covered by insurance plans. For convenience, a custom compound normally takes 2-4 days to prepare.
Custom Compounding is important for any individualized nutrition plan. Some physicians who regularly prescribe individualized compounds include OB/GYNs, family care doctors, allergists, pediatricians, veterinarians and dermatologists. Prior to mass production of drugs in the 1960s, most prescriptions required compounding by a druggist or apothecary.
About Village Green Apothecary:
Founded in 1965, their full-service pharmacy has safely provided prescription drugs and vitamin supplements for 45 years. Their Apothecary pharmacists have significant knowledge of nutrition and alternative medicine, as well as nutrient depletions, drug-nutrient interactions, and drug-herb interactions. This is information that most pharmacists cannot provide. The pharmacists will advise customers about side-effects from prescription drugs that can be alleviated by replacing key nutrients in the body that the drug depletes.
