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.

The Genelex Risk Assessment and Your Medications
Living with a rare disease is tough enough without also struggling to find the right medication and dose. If you're seeing multiple specialists, trying over-the-counter and herbal solutions, knowing how your genes play a role in processing your medications might help your doctors manage your treatment more effectively.
Taking our Risk Assessment can help you identify if you might be a high-risk patient. To find out, complete the following assessment and share the results with your doctor. Your doctor may recommend pharmacogenetic testing based on these results.
