Have you always thought that to you don’t respond well to certain medication? Or maybe you have to take either larger or smaller doses of medications in order to feel the effects or decrease the medications side effects. There might be a perfectly genetic explanation for that.
Individually we respond differently to medications because of our different genes. As a result, we each may experience a variety of different side effects. Pharmacogenetic testing helps physicians treat patients based on genetic factors. Through a simple blood test we will generate for you an extensive report that pertains specifically to your genetic makeup. This report will detail exactly what classes’ medications you can tolerate and the one’s that you should stay away from. This will improve your physician’s ability to safely and effectively prescribe medication, reducing the chance of an adverse reaction or guiding them on what medications may have to be given at a higher or lower dose to achieve desired results.
This report will be yours to keep and share with your other healthcare professionals to be used to better guide them in making medical decisions about your health.
