I highly recommend their genetic testing! Rather then trialing several different medications they can help you find one's that work with your body, I am very thankful for your work!

Fantastic team! They were amazing to work with and great in helping us understand and process this journey we have been on. These tests need to be offered to all! Instead of "hoping" meds can work, these tests can save so many from suffering months and wondering why nothing works. Highly recommend this to anyone. They need to fund these tests so that all can have access. They can and will change and improve so many lives.

Their pharmacogenomic test report and pharmacist consultation were super informative and interesting; the recommendations for specific medications made a lot of sense, and I am very happy with the results of the one we chose.

After a rocky few months of trial and error on finding a medication that helped treat my condition, this service (along with my doctors advice), we got it right away! I’m so glad to be feeling better!

I was first made aware of Personalized Prescribing by my medical insurer. I was curious about the sophistication of the service and the progress that has been made in prescribing based on genetic profiling. It sounded borderline science fiction to me! Personalized Prescribing's pharmacist, Sandra Hanna took the time to explain the science behind their testing, and the nature of conditions where it can help to make prescribing less a case of trial and error, improving compatibility and effectiveness. The test arrived quickly by courier and was simple to complete and return. Within days Sandra called me to talk me through the results which I shared with a GP. She was always available to reply to email queries as they arose. Although I am still settling down with the recommended medication, some of the side effects I experienced with previous meds have decreased, so I am optimistic for the future. In addition, Sandra provided thoughts on pain meds as well, with a caveat that the profiling on compatibility in this area is still evolving. My experience of working with Sandra and Personalized Prescribing Inc. has been positive and I am grateful for the opportunity to take this route, particularly at a time when getting consistent GP support is difficult due to a shortage of doctors in the province.

When it comes to the complexity and confusion of our mental health and symptoms, it's easy to feel like there's too much we can't explain. That's why it's exciting to see services like Personalized Prescribing continuing to bridge this gap with science-based answers and solutions. I had an excellent experience with PP Inc.. Every person I interacted with was friendly, supportive, knowledgeable, and available for help via phone and email. If you're interested in this service but have questions or are overwhelmed by the science or information on their website, don't hesitate to give them a call! I'm grateful to have this extensive medication information on hand. To understand why something is working for me vs. why its not, and to have options on what I can safely and effectively change to in the future if needed is invaluable :)

Pharmacogenetic testing can be helpful

Pharmacogenetics examines your genetic profile to understand what medication will be the most effective and not have undesired effects. 

But the services vary significantly

Other pharmacogenetics tests tend to be cheaper because they rely mainly upon one testing criteria, that only accounts for a fraction of drug failure, and they do not provide a personal consultation from a specialized psycho-pharmacist.

There are things you should know

Why do drugs fail?

Unfortunately, fifty percent of first-time prescribed drugs for mental health-related conditions fail due to patients’ genetic variations either in their metabolic enzymes or the interactivity between brain receptors, which are the target of the drugs. 

The other fifty percent of the population does not experience drug failure due to their genetic makeup. 

While First Generation tests only look at metabolism and isolated genes of high level of evidence, Second Generation tests look at metabolic genes and also brain receptors interactivity using state-of-the-art pathway algorithms in order to provide a personalized prescription recommendation.
