When you sit down and think about how important medications are for individuals, especially as one ages, it is mind boggling just how much of a positive impact they can have on an individual, if managed appropriately. Management is key when it comes to prescriptions and supplements. How are patients in Texas and across the world supposed to know how one medication will react to another that they may already be taking? That is where polypharmacy profile testing comes into play. Polypharmacy is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “the practice of administering many different medicines especially concurrently for the treatment of the same disease.” At Pharmacogenetic Testing, we can help ensure safety when a patient is taking multiple prescriptions/supplements.
Polypharmacy Profile Testing Texas
Wouldn’t it be nice if all of our bodies reacted and worked the exact same way? Medicine would be a much easier field, that’s for sure. The truth is that we are all different and our body even changes during our lifetime. While you may react one way to a medicine as a child, you may have an entirely different reaction to that same medicine as an adult. Our staff performs polypharmacy profile testing to help determine how drugs will interact with your body so that issues can be caught before it is too late. Research has shown that medication misuse is the number four cause of death in the United States. Our dedicated team is committed to lowering this troubling statistic through the use of the Bennett Polypharmacy Profile.
Professional Medication Management
Especially with the aging population in America, individuals are relying more and more on taking regular prescriptions/supplements to help manage a disease, condition or to try and stay healthy. When adding on a new medication to your daily routine, it is important that you consult with a medical professional in regards to whether or not this change will affect your body negatively. At Pharmacogenetic Testing, our professional medication management experts take pride in partnering with medical practices across Texas to help them determine how your body will react before you begin taking this new medicine. We study the way that your body will absorb, distribute, and react to medication in a similar way that your body digests food. Will this additional medicine cause increased bleeding internally? Will this medication affect the way that your other prescriptions function? Let us determine these new effects that could occur before you commit to additional prescription/supplement use.
While medicine can benefit us in so many ways, it is very important that you know how your body will react. If you are a medical practice in Texas looking for assistance with polypharmacy profile testing, Pharmacogenetic Testing is the partner for you.
