The right medicine right from the start
The opinion “one drug fits all” is long outdated. Especially with mental illnesses, experimenting with various medications and dosages can not only take a lot of time, but also often cause negative side effects. Expensive and recurrent visits to the doctor and pharmacist are required. A genetic test will allow you and your doctor to determine the most optimal therapy for you from the start.
Faster and more targeted to success
A pharmacogenetic analysis allows you to know your body’s individual reactions to drug substances in advance.
- Learn how you respond to certain medications
- Find the best medication for you faster
- Reduce your side effects
- Get back to your well-being more quickly
So far, physicians could only “guess” which drug would suit your individual metabolism. If there were side effects, they tried the next drug and the next and the next.
Pharmacogenetic tests can now show immediately whether the dosage of a drug should be adjusted and which drugs should be avoided in your personal case.
Do you take an active ingredient from this overview *?
**This is just an excerpt from the most commonly prescribed drugs. It may also affect drugs that are not listed in this review. Italic are the active substances that contain PGx information in the area SmPC-4.4 (chapter Warning and Precautions in the respective product information) at the supervisory authorities EMA (EU), FDA (USA) and / or Austria Codex. That is, before prescribing these drugs, a pharmacogenetic analysis is recommended / necessary.
How does it work?
Over 90% of people have gene mutations that directly affect the activity of enzymes and proteins responsible for drug metabolism and transport. Here, the type and number of mutations that a person carries within him, decide whether an active ingredient is degraded (metabolized) faster or slower. This results in different reactions to medication, as well as unwanted side effects.
PharmGenetix tests this individual activity of your enzymes and can tell you how your body metabolizes drugs and how to minimize side effects.
Our high-quality, science-based analysis allows you to receive the individually most effective medication in precise dosage from your doctor for each future prescription. Your pharmacogenetic profile does not change throughout your life, therefore you do not need to repeat this test every time you get a new prescription.
What are the advantages?
You can give your doctor an information that was previously unavailable to him. This knowledge is important and makes an individual and precise therapy possible.
Individual efficacy and tolerability of medications
Dosage recommendations to avoid/reduce side effects
Information about unproblematic/avoidable drug combinations based on your individual metabolite profile
shorter path of suffering
We offer a variety of analyzes depending on whether you want to know your body’s response to drug agents for a specific treatment or multiple medical applications.
Our employees are here to help you find out which analysis would be most useful for you and to clarify the details and prices of the respective analyzes.
It is important to understand that this analysis helps your doctor to immediately prescribe the right medication for you in the dosage that is right for you. Without trial-and-error testing and waiting for a drug to work.
