myDNA Genetic Testing

myDNA - Speak with your Pharmasave Richlea Square pharmacist today.Have you ever experienced side effects from taking a medication? Or wondered why a medication is not working for you?

We would like to introduce our new genetic testing service called myDNA, which can assist both pharmacists and doctors in identifying the right medication at the right dose for you!

Your unique genetic profile determines how you process certain medications. That is why individuals vary in how they respond to the same medications and dose. Some people get minimal benefits while others may experience side effects.

The myDNA tests covers more than 1/3 of the most commonly prescribed medications and the results have a lifelong relevance; so if you are taking any of the following medications, this test may be of benefit to you, including:

  • Antidepressants             
  • Pain medications            
  • Blood thinners         
  • Acid reflux medications

The test is a quick, painless cheek swab that can be done in pharmacy in less than a minute! Once myDNA have analysed and interpreted your results, a personalized report will be sent to our pharmacist as well as your doctor. The report will contain information on how some of your genes function. It will also provide actionable advice on current and future medications.

Once your results are available we will arrange a private consultation with you to deliver your results. Based on the findings of your personal report, we will provide you with recommendations on any necessary medication or dose adjustments, and forward the results to your doctor.

During your consultation, you will be provided with access to myDNA ExlporemyDNA Explore is your personal secure web portal which allows you to view your report and learn more about how your results can affect the way your body responds to certain medications.

Feel free to drop by and speak to our pharmacists for more details!
