What is Pharmacogenomics (PGx)?
Pharmacogenomics (PGx) looks at how your DNA affects the way you respond to drugs.
In some cases, your DNA can affect whether you have a bad reaction to a drug or whether a drug helps you or has no effect.
Pharmacogenomics can improve your health by helping you know ahead of time whether a drug is likely to benefit you and be safe for you to take.
Knowing this information can help your doctor find medicine that will work best for you.
