DNA Testing for prescription medications

Finding the right medication and dose is often a matter of trial and error. 

Using the science of pharmacogenomics, a simple myDNA Medication Test can help your healthcare professional be more informed to tailor your medications to your genetic profile.

Discover your response to a range of medications from categories including Mental Health, Cardiovascular, Pain and Gastrointestinal.

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 Oceania 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.
