Why should I take a pharmacogenetic test?

The pharmacological compatibility test provides information on how a person metabolizes and tolerates certain drugs, as well as on the response it will provide and whether it will be more or less effective. This information will allow the health professional to select the most appropriate drug, including its dose, in order to make it as effective as possible, minimizing, or in the best cases, avoiding the appearance of adverse reactions.

The main functions are to establish the most optimal medication, the correct dosage, and to anticipate possible adverse reactions.

Pharmacogenetic tests are classified within precision medicine and personalized medicine. People respond differently to treatments, with pharmacogenetic testing aiding in the creation of individualized protocols.

Some countries are incorporating specific pharmacogenetic tests into their health treatments.
