Do Not Use

This medication is NOT recommended for you, and using an alternative medication is recommended instead, based on possible therapeutic failure or adverse side effects.

Use As Directed

Your response to this medication is expected to be similar to most other individuals, and no unique prescribing recommendations are provided as a result.

Use With Caution

A gene-drug interaction has been identified that may impact this medication’s effectiveness or tolerability. Your response is expected to be different from most people.

Use As Directed/Preferred

Based on one or more drug gene interactions identified, compared to others, you have an increased likelihood of responding to this medication.

Okay, now for a quick science lesson on Pharmacogenetics.

How do my genes affect the way drugs work in my body?

Your body contains proteins called enzymes that break down medication and activate it so it can take effect. Other proteins transport the drug where it needs to go (transporters) or let the drug into the cells (receptors) where it will take effect.

Your unique genetic variations dictate protein and enzyme activity. For example, you may inherit enzymes that are slower to break down drugs. Sometimes, this could mean that a standard dose of the drug stays in your body for longer, potentially leading to adverse side effects.

So, why is knowing what genetic variants you have important? Well, one of the major benefits of having these insights is helping healthcare professionals more accurately identify which drug–and what dose–will work best for you BEFORE you are treated.

Are you ready to feel better sooner with less medication "trial and error"?

According to Mayo Clinic, pharmacogenetic testing may be helpful under the following three scenarios:

1. Determining whether a medication may be an effective treatment for you

2. Determining what the best dose of a medication is for you

3. Determining whether you could have serious side effects from a medication

Personalized Insights should be a basic part of our health care. I have wasted hundreds of dollars on medications that didn't work for me. If I had this test before receiving drug after drug I would not have had to suffer through the endless side effects like I did. Please make this available to everyone who needs it!

After taking the test, my doctor and I are now able to avoid certain medications that we had been considering for me. Having the test results makes me feel so much more secure because I know now I won’t have to suffer through medications that I otherwise would have had to. I’m really glad you (Inagene) are doing this - I know it will help a lot of people. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is trying different medications that don’t seem to be working.

 This should be part of our health care! I have wasted hundreds of dollars on
pain meds that didn't work. If they did this test prior to giving me drug after
drug I would not have had to suffer through side effects.

If my doctor and I had this information 20 years ago many of the medicationsI have been prescribed
would not have been, and that time wouldn’t have been wasted suffering on a medication that wasn’t compatible with my DNA when an alternative that was compatible could have been tried. The test helped us adjust the dosage of my antidepressant, and gave us new antidepressant treatment options to try that are compatible with my DNA. With so much trial and error in prescribing antidepressants, not only will chronic pain and mental health patients benefit with testing prior to being treated, but it will also benefit doctors, costs, and the environment. If this pandemic is teaching us anything it is that we must move forward using the technology we have now!

The most important impact of the test results was giving me confidence
to talk to my healthcare providers about my current medication regiment.
I have solid evidence that backs up my feelings and experience.
