What is pharmacogenetic testing?
Pharmacogenetics, also called pharmacogenomics, is the study of how genes affect the body's response to certain medicines. It is a good idea to use this form of testing to find out what medications would be a good fit for you and to see which ones could be potentially dangerous for you if taken.
Genes are parts of DNA passed down from your mother and father. They carry information that determines your unique traits, such as height and eye color. This form of testing allows you to beforehand what would be a good "medication-fit" for you.
People with a history of significant side effects to medication will benefit from this as well as those on the verge on starting new medications.
Pharmacogenetic testing is non-invasive. It is as simple as a swab inside your cheek. Call our office to discuss and schedule one.
