Even FDA-approved drugs are not always safe for everyone. Adverse drug reactions (ADR) are unintended harmful side effects of medication. They often result from a genetic variant that changes the way an individual responds to the drug.
Pharmacogenetic (PGx) Testing is one of our greatest assets in preventing ADRs. These tests analyze genetic information to predict how someone will respond to specific medications. This leads to more personalized medication plans, less risk from ''trial and error" prescriptions, and reduced costs for patients and providers.
