A genetic test for Codeine is recommended by our clinical team, as it has been shown that this enzyme is important in how the drug is handled in the body.
The test results can provide you and your doctor with a better understanding of how you respond to this drug. This can improve health outcomes, prevent adverse drug reactions and save money spent on ineffectual medication.
Tests can be ordered as a group test called myDNA that determine how your body processes 50% of commonly presribed medications.
