Doctors are using pharmacogenomics to help determine what drugs will work, and which drugs to avoid.
not new, but more and more doctors are testing their patients to see how they process a variety of drugs from pain relievers to cardio medications. This will tell them who the medication will work for, who it won’t, and who might have a severe drug reaction and avoid that.
Doctors keep the genetic information on file so they can check to see if a drug will work or cause a problem before prescribing it. This helps take the guesswork out of prescriptions.
Pharmacogenomics not only helps with medications patients are currently taking, but will guide their future prescriptions and potentially save lives.
