Have you ever wondered how your genetics influence the way your medications work? If so, or if you’d like to know, pharmacogenetic testing may be right for you.
Pharmacogenetics (PGx) is the study of an individual’s genetic variations and how it affects your body’s ability to metabolize and use different medications. A simple cheek swab allows us to examine how you metabolize specific drugs and can reveal variations in drug metabolism genes that encode as less efficient (defined as “poor metabolizers”) or more efficient (defined as “rapid metabolizers”).
Understanding how a person metabolizes a medication helps our pharmacists recommend a personalized medication regimen with medications that work best and are the safest for you.
