What Your Results Will Tell You
The results of this test could help you plan the medications you take for the rest of your life. Instead of the trial and error method of prescribing, the test results help patients and their healthcare providers get medications right from the start.
Your test results analyze your genetic profile against more than 200 prescription and Over the Counter medications. They provide information on what meds will be effective, ineffective or have negative side effects, based on your genetic makeup.The meaning of your results will be explained to you during a Personalized Medication Review (PMR) with our lead pharmacist, who is trained in pharmacogenetics and is a certified PMR specialist. During this review session the pharmacist will explain how your body might process different medications based on your genetics. As needed, the pharmacist will co-ordinate with your healthcare provider to discuss the results of the test and how they impact your medication.
Your genetic profile never changes, that means the results of your initial test won’t change.
