What is a myDNA Personalised Medications Test?

Understand how your DNA may affect your response to certain medications.

A myDNA Medication Test is a form of pharmacogenomic testing that looks at how your genetics can affect your response to certain medications.

It may help to reduce the trial-and error when it comes to finding the right medication or dose for you.

Why personalise your medications?

May lead to fewer drug side effects

Your DNA helps to determine how your body processes medication. By assessing the genetic markers, an increased risk of some adverse reactions may be able to be predicted prior to an individual starting a medication.

May reduce some of the guesswork

Pharmacogenomic testing may help to reduce the trial-and-error in prescribing medications, with the aim of getting you onto the right medication faster.

Results have lifetime value

The test results are presented in a report for your healthcare professional to consider when deciding on the choice of medication that is right for you.

How it works

It’s quick, easy, and non-invasive to complete.

Did you Know?

Over one million people in Australia are prescribed antidepressants.

Finding an antidepressant that works is some times a matter of trial-and-error. Only 50% of people respond to the first antidepressant they try.

A simple myDNA Medications Test can help your doctor to tailor your medications to suit your genetic profile.
