Why does one medication work for you but not for someone else?  A branch of science known as pharmacogenetics promises to help physicians prescribe medicines based on patients’ unique genetic characteristics that affect their response to specific medications. These tests are changing how physicians think about and prescribe medications for an array of complex conditions, such as mental health, pain and cardio metabolic diseases.
