Pharmacogenomics (PGx)

Have you ever wondered how your genetics influence the way your medications work? If so, or if you’d like to know, pharmacogenomic testing may be right for you.

Pharmacogenomics (PGx) evaluates how an individual’s genetic variations influence their body’s ability to metabolize and respond to different medications. A simple cheek swab allows us to examine how you metabolize and respond to 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 or responds to a medication helps our pharmacists recommend a personalized medication regimen with medications that work best and are the safest for you.
