If you want to know how you’ll react to a drug before you take it, then pharmacogenetic testing can help. Also known as genetic or DNA testing, it involves examining your genes to determine how you’ll respond to certain medications. This test focuses specifically on the cytochrome P450 enzyme, which is responsible for metabolizing over 70% of clinically used drugs.
At ClarityX, we offer comprehensive DNA tests that can tell you whether a drug will be ineffective, cause adverse effects or interact negatively with another medication you’re taking. We offer two types of tests:
- Mindwell Test: Focuses on mental wellness treatments (such as antidepressants and SSRIs)
- Max Rx Test: Includes everything in the Mindwell Test and 16 additional therapeutic fields
Both tests can be taken in the comfort of your own home. After you request your test and complete the check-out process. Then, you’ll receive a simple, at-home test. Once you perform a cheek swab and return the sample in the pre-paid envelope, you’ll get a thorough, personalized report in your patient portal!
