Reed’s Pharmacy Offers Rxight Pharmacogenetic Testing

Sep 30, 2016 08:30PM

Reed’s Compounding Pharmacy now offers Rxight pharmacogenetic testing, a type of precision medicine that uses an individual’s genetic information to choose a medication that is most likely to be safe and effective. Rxight pharmacogenetic testing is easy and requires only a swab from the inside of a patient’s mouth. Once the results are complete, a pharmacist sits down with the patient to discuss results and any appropriate medication changes. These results can also be used by future medical providers to make appropriate decisions when considering new therapies.

Drug safety and effectiveness are major concerns for patients, pharmacists and physicians. With increasing treatment options, precision medicine was developed to help medical providers choose the best treatment for each patient. Traditional medicine uses population data to determine the most appropriate treatment, but this can lead to errors due to variation between individuals. Precision medicine allows medical providers to choose treatment that is likely to produce the most benefit while minimizing potential adverse drug reactions.
