Pharmacogenomics (PGX), also known as pharmacogenetics testing or drug gene testing, allows physicians to determine a patient’s genetic makeup and how that will affect an interaction with a specific medication. When a PGX test is done, physician no longer need to experiment with different medications and dosages for a patient. This is a great cost-saving measure for private practice physicians – not to mention it greatly reduces the chances of adverse drug events (ADEs). In order to accurately and confidently prescribe medication for a patient, using pharmacogenomics testing is the only sure way.
Toxicology testing reduces medical practice liabilities for physicians as they can accurately determine what is in a patient’s body and how that can affect any prescriptions. Physicians can monitor patients who have a history of addiction or drug abuse while these patients are on Schedule II or III prescriptions. Toxicology testing is an accurate way to determine which medications or illicit drugs a patient is or isn’t taking.
Polypharmacy has become a major problem in the nation as it has climbed to the fourth leading cause of death in the country. Determining which medications a patient is or isn’t taking, and what other physicians have prescribed, makes polypharmacy testing a necessary part of medical practice these days. Polypharmacy testing not only checks for prescription drugs, but OTCs and herbal supplements as well. This testing thus makes it much easier for physicians to determine how a patient’s array of medications will interact with one another. And it saves costs and protects clinics against liabilities.
Texas Genetic Testing, LLC has one of the fastest turnaround times in the country for reporting and confirming laboratory test results. Other labs may take weeks to report on findings, while our lab can have toxicology and pharmacogenomics test results back in 32 to 48 hours.
