  • What is Pharmacogenomics (PGx)?
    Pharmacogenomics is the study of how an individual's genetic makeup influences their response to drugs. It combines pharmacology (the study of drugs) and genomics (the study of genes and their functions) to optimize drug therapy, making it more personalized and effective.
  • Who is PGx for?
    Pharmacogenomics is for anyone taking or considering prescription medications. It can be particularly beneficial for individuals with certain medical conditions or those who have experienced adverse drug reactions. By understanding your genetic profile, healthcare providers can tailor medication choices and dosages to maximize efficacy and minimize side effects.
  • How does PGx work?
    Pharmacogenomics analyzes specific genes related to drug metabolism, efficacy, and potential side effects. Genetic testing is usually done through a simple cheek swab. The results provide information on how your body processes medications, allowing healthcare professionals to make more informed decisions about prescribing drugs that are more likely to work well for you.
  • What should I expect during a PGx test?
    The process is straightforward. You provide a biological sample from a cheek swab to the testing facility, and they analyze your genetic material. The results are then shared with your healthcare provider. Your provider will interpret the results in the context of your medical history to make personalized medication recommendations.
  • How can PGx benefit me?
    Pharmacogenomics can enhance your healthcare by: - Optimizing Medication Efficacy: Tailoring prescriptions based on your genetic makeup increases the likelihood that medications will work effectively for you. - Minimizing Side Effects: Understanding how your body processes drugs helps identify medications with fewer side effects, reducing the risk of adverse reactions. - Avoiding Trial-and-Error: Pharmacogenomics can help healthcare providers choose the right medication and dosage from the beginning, avoiding a potentially lengthy and frustrating trial-and-error process.
  • What types of drugs does a PGx test cover?
    Our PGx test covers common medications in drug categories, including but not limited to blood thinners, statins, pain relievers, antibiotics, chemotherapies, ADHD, antidepressants, and more. For more information on what kinds of drugs this test covers, visit our full medication list.
  • How is my privacy protected?
    Genetic testing facilities adhere to strict privacy standards. Your genetic information is typically de-identified and stored securely. The results are shared only with your healthcare provider, ensuring confidentiality and privacy
  • Can children benefit from a PGx test?
    Yes, PGx can be beneficial for children as well. Understanding their genetic makeup can help healthcare providers prescribe medications that are safe and effective for pediatric patients.
  • How often should I update my PGx information?
    Your genetic makeup remains relatively stable throughout your life. However, it's advisable to update your pharmacogenomic information when there are significant changes in your health or if you are considering new medications. You can always check with us before you add or change your medication therapy.
