Drug Response
103 reports

Making prescriptions personal

Circle's Drug Response test spotlights your body's response to 103 drugs and medications used for a wide range of conditions and procedures. The aim of our test is to offer you clinical information about your body's genetic response to certain enzymes, which affect the way your liver may process different medications in turn affecting your ideal dosage requirements or your risk of potential side effects.

Understanding pharmacogenomics
Pharmacogenomics is the study of how people respond differently to drug therapy based upon their genetic make-up or genes. Diet, overall health, and environment also have significant influence on medication response, but none are stronger indicators of how you process medication than your genetics.

The benefits and limitations of genetic testing for drug response

Always talk to your doctor before making any changes to your medications
Changing medications or dosing on your own could be harmful to your health.
You'll learn how your genetics may influence your response to some medications
Your results will not tell you definitively if a medication will not work for you or cause you to experience side effects.
That's because other factors beyond genetics also influence your response to medications
When writing your prescription, your doctor can consider both genetic and non-genetic factors like health history, weight, and other medications you take that also play a role in how your body processes drugs.
