Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes can affect a person's response to medication.

Your DNA plays a part in what drugs are most likely to work for you, how quickly or slowly your body breaks down a drug, how much (what dose) your body might need for the drug to work, as well as identifying potential harmful side effects.

Your primary care provider and specialized providers can order RxMatch testing.

The RxMatch report includes information on antidepressants, opioid pain relievers, heart medications, anti-inflammatories, antidiabetics, medications used before and after surgery, and many others.

Benefits of RxMatch

  • By incorporating genomic information, providers can pinpoint which medications are more likely to work for their patients.
