Military Veterans Welcome for Nexus Medical Opinions and DBQ Exams
This test is performed to insure EFFECTIVENESS and SAFETY of the medications the patient is taking.
When certain medications are not metabolized properly by our body, they might not work well and they may cause unnecessary or increased adverse reactions.
A pharmacogenomics test evaluates genetic polymorphism or drug interactions and assesses whether the medications the patient is taking are metabolized properly.
The test results may indicate that one or more medications are not properly metabolized, which may explain the reason why the medication does not work well or why that medication may be responsible for some adverse reactions. Based on the test results, the patient and doctor may or may not decide to modify certain medications for improved safety or effectiveness.
A saliva specimen is obtained in the office via a simple, painless, 10-second mouth swab.
Innovative, genetic sequencing is done at the lab.
A detailed report is sent to your doctor within 6-10 weeks.
Together with your doctor, you will decide if medications need to be modified for safety and/or their effectiveness.
