Custom Nutritional Supplements
Sometimes making sure you're getting all the vitamins and minerals you need can be difficult, complex, and confusing. CORE Pharmacy aims to provide you with a supplement plan that fits your lifestyle, not just your needs.
We offer private 1/2 hour consultations, where we will we spend time learning and discussing your medical background, any symptoms you may be experiencing, lifestyle, as well as current medications and nutritional supplements you may be taking. At the end of your consultation a recommendation will be giving to best fit your individual needs. Sometimes a customized product may be the solution, which can be compounded here in the pharmacy for you!
CORE Pharmacy carries a wide selection of professional-grade and high-quality vitamins and supplements. We are more than happy to place a specific order for you if there is a specific product from one of the product lines we already carry.
If you are unable to pick up your vitamin or supplement, please ask about our daily mail service.

What is compounding? Do I need a prescription?
Compounding is the combination of one or more ingredients to provide a dosage form that is not readily manufactured for the treatment of a particular ailment. Most compounds require a prescription from your practitioner. Some compounds are available as over-the-counter compounds in the state of Illinois.
Once a practitioner has sent a compounding prescription in, how long before I receive the prescription? What is the best way to avoid lapse of medication?
If verified by insurance, typical time from receipt of the prescription to receipt by you is 2-3 days. Since these are customized prescriptions, we like to verify that the customer still wants us to make the prescription and it takes time for the compounding to be completed and processed. Some of the more personalized supplements may take as many as 5 days to complete. In addition to allowing for the right amount of time, we suggest ordering these compounded formulas in quantity of 300 to avoid lapse of medication.
