DNA Testing in Central Texas

For Medication Safety & Effectiveness

Ever wonder if your medications are safe and effective? A simple DNA test done by cheek swab can improve the safety and effectiveness of your medications by analyzing your unique genetic makeup.

Genetic testing will help your physician understand how your body metabolizes medications according to your specific DNA, which will help him prescribe the best medication and dose for you.

Prescribing with confidence has never been more important. Benefits of our pharmacogenetic testing services include:

  • Helps physicians choose the right drug and the right dose
  • Minimizes adverse drug reactions
  • Provides lifetime protection from drug toxicity or lack of drug efficacy

Selecting the best medication the first time not only limits adverse drug reactions but also improves the response to many commonly prescribed medications for some of the following conditions:

  • Chronic pain
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Cancer
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory issues
  • Cardiovascular conditions
  • Acid reflux
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Arthritis

The test results are only needed once in a lifetime. They will not change and will assist your physician in making better choices for your treatment. The test can be administered in your doctor’s office with a simple cheek swab or blood sample. Ask us about DNA testing at your next visit.
