How will my test results be used in my care?

If you are in the genetic test group, your results will be returned to your doctor or pharmacist within 3 working days. After this time, your doctor or pharmacist may contact you with your personalized prescription – which may be a different dosage or different drug than you may have received when you started you medication. In the time between your blood or saliva collection and the personalized prescription, your doctor will prescribe your medication as he or she usually does (without taking your DNA into account) so that there is no delay in treatment. Additionally, you will also be given a card on which your DNA results will be printed. You will be asked to show this card to all doctors and pharmacists during the study. They may be able to use your results to personalize additional new prescriptions.
