Pharmacogentic Testing by Rxight
When it comes to receiving the appropriate treatment for illness, we know the approach is not always clear. In trying to personalize treatment, physicians often have to see how certain medications work with your body, and then gradually modify the dosage or switch to another medication. This is because our bodies all process medications differently, based on our genetic profile.
Medication that’s effective for one person may not be as effective or may cause harmful side effects in another person. Figuring out which medication and dose is right is important for you, your family and your loved ones.
To help identify what works best for you, Waveland Pharmacy is pleased to offer Rxight Pharmacogenetic Testing which analyzes how your genes guide the metabolism of prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications. This is especially helpful to identify side effects and non-response to medications.
Identifying how a patient metabolizes a medication allows for doctors to design a personalized treatment plan with medications that work best and are safest for that patient. In addition to reducing adverse drug reactions, pharmacogenetic testing also increases patient confidence and medication adherence, decreases medical costs, and outlines optimal dosage of medications for that patient.
Bring this Physician Authorization Form to your healthcare provider for them to complete and you can bring it to Waveland Pharmacy.
