Your genetics can play an important role in the way you respond to medications. In fact, 90% of the population has at least one genetic variation that can affect how their body breaks down medicine.
Because of these genetic differences, one drug might work well for one person, but not at all for you. Some drugs can also cause side effects for you, but not for someone else. In addition, drugs interact with one another.

The Genelex Risk Assessment and Your Medications
There are a number of medications that are used to treat and manage epilepsy that may have interactions with various genes. This could affect how you respond to that medication and/or cause unwanted side effects. Regardless of the type of seizure you have, genetic testing may help your doctors manage your treatment more effectively.
Taking our Risk Assessment can help you identify if you might be a high-risk patient. To find out, complete the following assessment and share the results with your doctor. Your doctor may recommend pharmacogenetic testing based on these results.
