Antipsychotics DNA test

Psychosis is a psychiatric condition characterized by loss of contact with reality as not justified false beliefs or sensory perceptions.

The antipsychotics act on the dopaminergic pathways and, in the case of the atypical agents, also the serotoninergic ones. However, this type of therapy is unspecific, because act on several pathways of the central nervous system. There is great interindividual variability in response to psychotropic drugs.

Antipsychotic drugs have numerous side effects and problems of inefficiency. They are also likely to interact with other medicines.

Set of factors that make them difficult to select and dose. This variability can be reduced by studying the patient's genetics and the interactions they may have.

The ANTIPSYCHOTICSpgx profile studies the main categories and drugs related to the treatment of psychosis. The report includes an interpretation of the results for the 15 most frequent prescription drugs, so that it can be used immediately.

Interpretation of the report in polytherapy

In this report, the "green" labeling of a certain drug with the patient's genes indicates that it can be prescribed in the standard dose conditions disclosed in the prospectus or those recommended by the physician. This applies in the case of monotherapy.

However, if the patient takes several medications, which is very common, although in the report would appear in "green" can cause adverse effects due to possible interactions between them, which can sometimes be severe, either by toxicity or by therapeutic failure.

Drugs are chemicals that may interfere the normal metabolism of other drugs. Interferences that are also applicable to the chemical substances of various medicinal plants and food supplements.

Consequently, the whole of the medication, together with the consumer products or life habits of the patient, must undergo an evaluation of pharmacological interactions.

Consulting g-Nomic® Pharmacogenetics interpretation software, before prescribing, is an effective aid to avoid most adverse effects or therapeutic failures due to medication.

g-Nomic® interrelates all drugs, herbs, nutritional supplements and lifestyle, with the patient's genes. It also advises the most appropriate dose to prescribe.
