What Are Personalized Medication And Supplements?
At WellnessScript, we personalize and customize medications and supplements in many ways:
- You will know exactly what your body needs and take only what you need–and nothing you don’t
- Your medications and supplements will come packaged in convenient daily packets to make it very easy and convenient to stay on track
- If you require a custom medication, WellnessScript pharmacists will compound your custom formulation in our specialized pharmacy lab
Adequate nutritional intake is key to preventing and treating various diseases as well as resolving difficult symptoms, like fatigue and mood changes. We provide lab testing to determine which supplements your body needs. Knowing exactly what you need from your food and supplements allows you to optimize your health and feel your best!
Convenient Daily Supplement And Medication Packets, Personalized, Just For You
WellnessScript helps you figure out what medication and supplements are best for you and your body, what time of day to take them, and how to take them with your other medications and meals. We will even coordinate all the refills and send them to you every month.
And we make it super easy to stay organized and on track!
What Are Compounded Medications?
Compounding is the process of making custom and personalized medicines by specially trained pharmacists. Compounded medications contain individual ingredients mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form that is right for you. Personalizing medications also avoids unnecessary additives often present in commercially available products.
How Do I Know If I Need Compounded Medications?
For many people, compounded medications are one of the choices in the treatment of nearly any medical problem. People choose compounded medications because they can be customized and personalized. In many cases, compounded medications are more natural than their traditional counterparts. People with sensitivities to medication fillers or with corn and gluten sensitivities can be helped by customizing their medications without these offenders. Your WellnessScript clinician will help you decide which kind of medication is best for you.
What Else Should I Know About Compounding?
At WellnessScript, our pharmacists are extensively trained and specialize in compounding medications. Our lab follows strict quality assurance processes and our compounding pharmacists work hand-in-hand with our clinicians to help determine your best treatment plans. Just like all WellnessScript services, our pharmacists are available via video appointment for one-on-one consultations from the privacy of your home.
Although compounded medications are frequently not covered by insurance, they are typically much less expensive than brand medications and some generics. You can use your Health Spending Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for your medications.
At WellnessScript, we believe every person is unique. We don’t practice “cookie cutter medicine”, striving instead to understand your specific needs and personalizing every step of your experience.
We bring together top holistic experts and make them easily available to help solve your health issues. Our clinicians have advanced training and years of experience in uncovering the root cause, unpacking and treating problems that traditional medicine fails to address.
We believe you shouldn’t go out of your way to address your concerns so everything we do--video appointments, lab testing, supplements and compounded medications--is easily available to you, right at home.
We believe that you shouldn’t feel alone when you’re dealing with a health problem. We’ll help you navigate the process, providing support, reminders, encouragement, and relevant information along the way.
What is WellnessScript?

We take the time to get to know you--your needs, preferences and lifestyle--and then partner with you to help you relieve symptoms and optimize health. WellnessScript is a comprehensive service that offers everything under one roof: yours.

- In-home lab testing: Labs can be done at home too? Yes. Nearly all lab testing we order can be conveniently and comfortably completed in your home or office.
- Obsessively dedicated support: responsive, compassionate clinicians and support staff are at your service.
Why hasn’t my doctor mentioned this kind of option for me?
Many people (including many healthcare providers) are unaware of the role different hormones and nutrients play in human health, or how seriously an imbalance can impact long-term health. Interestingly, optimal health is never discussed in medical and pharmacy school training! This leaves most clinicians woefully unprepared to help patients achieve personalized, optimal health and well-being.
If you’ve ever tried to discuss your fatigue, or your mood changes or your difficulty sleeping with your doctor and walked out with a stack of prescriptions you are not alone. There is simply not enough time in a traditional medical visit to be meaningfully helpful. We find this approach as frustrating as you do--so we set out to fix it. At WellnessScript, you will never experience “drive-through medicine”. Ever.
Aren’t hormonal changes normal?
They sure are. However, at a certain point in life (for some in their early 30's) hormonal changes can create symptoms that impact your quality of life. Many people think that they have to tolerate these symptoms--weight gain, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, low sex drive--as a fact of getting older. We don’t buy that.
In fact, research suggests that in order to maintain good physical and mental health, we should not accept it! Maintaining optimal balance and levels of hormones promotes and improves quality of life and prevents (and even reverses) many of the degenerative illnesses commonly associated with aging.
Do you prescribe bioidentical hormones?
Yes. Our certified compounding pharmacy produces high-quality bioidentical hormones, fully customized for you and shipped to your home.
Do you offer non-traditional medications for thyroid treatment?
We offer a complete functional medicine approach to thyroid treatment, including in-depth testing, prescribing of all thyroid medications (including Armour, NP-Thyroid, West-Throid and Nature-Throid as well as compounded thyroid medications). Our supplement packets can include specific nutrients for thyroid support and are customized for you based on actual blood levels (no guessing!).
What kind of lab testing do you offer?
We partner with labs that offer the highest clinical quality and have a long history of delivering results that can be trusted. Some examples of our lab partners include:
- Genova Diagnostics
- ZRT Laboratories
- Pathway Genomics
What types of supplements do you provide?
At WellnessScript, we only use physician-grade supplements in our daily packs. We partner with companies such as Orthomolecular, Metagenics, Pure Encapsulations, Integrative Therapeutics and Nordic Naturals because of their exceptional purity and quality standards. We only provide supplements we would take ourselves (and we’re picky!)
