Talk to Your Doctor About Your Options

If your doctor is using Next Genomix Laboratories for their pharmacogenomic testing, then they will be able to provide insight into the next steps based on the results of your test. This could mean choosing a different medication or adjusting your dosage.


Follow Your Doctor’s Recommendations

Following your doctor's recommendations about how to adjust your treatment plan based on your results is crucial for getting the best result possible and achieving the optimal health outcome that you deserve. There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to treating a medical condition, so it's important to listen to your doctor and follow their advice on how to proceed.


Stay Up-to-Date on New Research in Pharmacogenomics

As more research is conducted in the field of pharmacogenomics, we may be able to use new information to develop better treatment plans for our patients. Stay informed by following reputable sources, such as Next Genomix Laboratories, which publishes informative articles and posts on the latest developments in pharmacogenomics.


Talk to Your Family About Their Genetic History

If a family member has had an adverse reaction to a certain type of medication or has experienced complications due to non-response to a certain medication, you may be at an increased risk for similar issues. If this is the case, it is crucial to talk to your doctor about taking precautions and making adjustments ahead of time.
