Your genetics can play an important role in the way you respond to medications. In fact, 90% of the population has at least one genetic variation that can affect how their body breaks down medicine.
Because of these genetic differences, one drug might work well for one person, but not at all for you. Some drugs can also cause side effects for you, but not for someone else. In addition, drugs interact with one another.
Check out this helpful resource we've created to help you better understand pharmacogenetics (PGx).
The Genelex Risk Assessment and Your Medications
Did you know that there are a variety of opioids that interact with certain genes and may cause adverse drug events? Even when properly taken and prescribed, opioids have the potential to cause negative reactions. Living with chronic pain is tough enough without also struggling to find the right medication and dose.
Taking our Risk Assessment can help you identify if you might be a high-risk patient. To find out, complete the assessment and share the results with your doctor. Your doctor may recommend pharmacogenetic testing based on these results.
