Consulting your genetic blueprint to find the right medication for you

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Selecting the wrong medication for a patient can have serious implications. For example, if you have depression, the wrong medication could actually cause dangerous side effects that make you feel worse. In fact, researchers in the growing field of pharmacogenomics, which identifies drug-gene reactions, have already discovered that an individual’s genetic characteristics can influence how […]
