Individuals and Patients

Each individual is unique and deserves to be treated like it. An ExactMedsTM pharmacogenomic (PGx) test could show your healthcare team just how to do that.

Pharmacogenomics considers an individual’s genetics relative to what impact they have on how their bodies process medications. A medication that may be beneficial for one person may be dangerous for another, just based on slight differences in their genes. Taking a look inside will help take the guesswork out of prescribing for you.

Still Have Questions?

The Right Medication
Failure rates for classes of medications can be as high as 75% and genetic factors can account for up to 95% of this variability. Virtually every test shows a genetic variance that could affect how your body metabolizes particular medications. A pharmacogenomic (PGx) test, followed by a consultation by a PGx-trained pharmacist, could be a good first step toward better results.

The Only Way to Know 
With many medications, it’s difficult to tell whether or not it’s actually working for you. A quick test, using just a quick cheek swab, is the only way to tell you if the medication you’re on is right for your genes and has a chance of being effective for you. That’s always a good place to start.

Where Does It Help?
While the science behind PGx testing does not yet apply to all medications on the market, there are several classes of medications where testing to create more personalized prescribing could have significant benefits, including with cardiac, behavioral health and pain medications. Success with these medications is critical and, without testing, may require trial-and-error before finding a solution.
