Pain Management PGx Test

Pain Management PGx Test

It is time to finally get effective pain relief and get back to living your life.

What is the PGx Pain Management Test?

The effect of medication is unique to each individual, which is why pharmacogenomics analyzes specific portions of DNA associated with certain drug classes.

The analysis identifies how each person is likely to respond to medication.

The PGx Pain Management test helps you discover how your DNA influences whether a drug may cause side effects, be ineffective or provide symptomatic relief [1,2].

With your test results, your doctor is able to find the medication and dosage best suited to your needs.

How are test results used by healthcare professionals?

Your healthcare professional will carefully review your medication history, current medications, diagnosis, and any other relevant medical information to determine the most suitable treatment for you.

Your genetic information is a valuable complement to other medical data. Genetics alone cannot predict your response to medication with absolute certainty. In some cases, the best option for you may be a drug with a cautionary statement in your report.
