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.
Our cutting-edge technology solution gives us the ability to exchange health information and provide clinical decision support in real time. Test results are stored for the long-term, giving providers and patients the ability to reference medication insights across the entire healthcare system for a lifetime.
RxGenomix’s pharmacogenomic reports include genetic health risk information that has not been reviewed by the FDA. The ExactMeds®pharmacogenomic service leverages advanced genotype data to identify clinically relevant variants via patient saliva DNA for the purpose of understanding one’s health risk via medication utilization. The ExactMeds® program is not intended to diagnose any disease. A patient’s ethnicity may affect the relevance of each report and how one’s genetic health risk results are interpreted. Information delivered via the ExactMeds® service is not intended for a patient to independently act upon a medical decision, but rather to inform and provide the genetic risk information to share directly with their licensed provider. The ExactMeds® pharmacogenomic reports are not intended to tell a patient anything about their risk for developing a disease in the future.
The ExactMeds® pharmacogenomic service utilizes genotyping data to identify medication risk factors for the purpose of reporting and interpreting to inform discussions with a healthcare professional. The ExactMeds® pharmacogenomic report provides certain information about variants associated with metabolism of some therapeutics and provides interpretive drug information regarding the potential effect of those medications.
Warning: Pharmacogenomic test results should not be used to start, stop, or change any course of treatment without consulting with a patient’s provider. The ExactMeds® pharmacogenomic service is not a substitute for an appointment with a patient’s healthcare professional.
