About This Test

The Medcheck DNA test provides insights into  responsiveness to different medications and the likelihood of side effects or not responding.  

Medcheck gives insight into how a patient metabolizes, transports and binds specific drugs, which in turn allows physicians to prescribe those medications that are most likely to prove effective whilst minimising side effects.

Such a personalised approach to medicine has the power to produce better results, particularly for individuals whose genetic profile puts them at risk of experiencing either lack of response or an adverse reaction from a given drug.

Ideal For

The Medcheck test is suitable for anyone:

  • on an existing medication
  • planning to start a new medication
  • anyone experiencing side-effects, 
  • not responding, 
  • where their prescribing doctor is constantly having to adjust the dose of the medication* outside of the recommended range.

*It is important to confirm that the medication you are questioning is included in the Medcheck report as this test does not report on all medication, but rather only medication for which there is sufficient scientific evidence linking the metabolism of the medication to a genetic variant.
