About the benefits and limitations of Color’s Medication Response Genetic Test:
Always talk to your doctor before making any changes to your medications.
- Changing medications or dosing on your own could be harmful to your health.
You’ll learn how your genetics may influence your response to certain medications.
- Your results will not tell you definitively if a specific medication will not work for you or cause you to experience side effects.
That’s because other factors beyond genetics also influence your response to medications.
- When prescribing your medications, your doctor can consider genetic information and non-genetic factors like health history, body weight, and other medications you take that also play a role in how your body processes medications.
Additional important notes:
- This test is not intended to inform you about your current state of health, including whether or not you should take a medication or how much you should take.
- This test does not diagnose any health conditions and is not a substitute for visiting your health care provider.
- Discuss the results of the genetic test with your healthcare provider, including whether the medication label includes information on how to use genetic information to determine dosage.
