Your wellness deserves a personalized roadmap

Your pain medication treatment shouldn’t involve guesswork. Yet it can often be difficult for a physician to determine what pain medication will work best for you. This process can be time-consuming, costly and even dangerous. Through genetic testing, your physician can help determine appropriate medication for you, and help you avoid potentially severe side effects.

Feel Confident in Your Decisions

Not everyone responds to medications in the same exact way. Factors such as age and weight play a role, but your genetic makeup instructs your body on how to metabolize and process medications. Genetic testing can help you and your physician find the optimal pain medications for you.

Avoid Potentially Severe Side Effects

Not only can some medication result in little to no pain relief, but some have potentially life-threatening side effects. One reason is your body’s ability to get rid of all the excess chemicals. This is another reason it is important to know how your body will handle a drug before taking it.

Approximately $300 billion is wasted each year on drugs that do not work in people who carry certain genes.
