Pharmacogenetics

PERSONALISE your medication

Most drugs are only effective in 20-30% of the people who take them. This is because everyone is different and medications can be absorberd and metabolised in varying ways. In some circumstances medication can even be harmful due to adverse reactions. People sometimes forget to take medication and this may be due to memory or distrust of their pills. Knowing your medication is working and not likely to harm you is likely to help people understand their medicines and themselves better. These tests will tell you whether your medicines are working, what dose you should be taking and whether there is a risk of side effects occurring.
