DNA Testing for Medication Tolerance

The study of pharmacogenomics looks at how genes can affect an individual’s response to certain medications. By undertaking the myDNA pharmacogenomic DNA testing for medication, you can be more informed on how your body responds to a range of different medications, such as those used to treat mental health, pain, gastroenterology and cardiology.

Giving You an Insight into How Your Body Responds to Medication

Pharmacogenomic DNA testing for medication response helps your healthcare professional understand the role your genetics plays in how you process medications. This allows them to be better placed to prescribe safer and more effective medications for you. 

This knowledge helps to reduce the trial and error approach of prescribing medications so you can receive the right medication faster. Our DNA-based medication insights are available for a range of commonly prescribed medications. Please contact our friendly customer service team to see if we report on the medication that you’ve been prescribed.

Backed by Scientific Evidence and Reviewed by Clinical Experts

Our clinical team has over 120 years of combined clinical experience which they use together with the latest published guidelines and data to create your DNA insights. This helps you and your healthcare professional make more informed choices regarding your medication and dose.

It’s easy to undergo pharmacogenomic DNA medication testing in Australia with myDNA. Simply choose the appropriate testing kit, carry out your cheek swab, and send it to the myDNA Melbourne based lab. Let us do the rest. 

Your DNA and your data will always be safe with us. We use secure encrypted servers; we’ll never share your data without your consent and your DNA can be destroyed at any time at your request.

Customer success stories

Rachel Griffith

It’s given us peace of mind… we just know we’re not messing about with medications.

Joy Mawbey

It was more or less a revelation… that there is a reason that I’m suffering from so much pain post surgery compared to others.

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.
