Who gets the most benefit from Pillcheck?

Worried about mental health drugs not working for you? You’re not alone:

  • 70% of people don’t get relief from the first depression or anxiety medication they try.
  • Pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing is recognized by clinicians a key tool for mental health management, and the earlier the better. Bousman C, et al., Pharmacopsychiatry. 2021 Jan.

Pillcheck helps you and your doctor find the right mental health medications for you. An independent Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) confirmed that people struggling with depression and anxiety recovered faster with the Pillcheck service.

Feel better, sooner and reduce side effects with the peace of mind you’re on the right medications.

Pain killers are highly effective at blunting severe pain, however prolonged use can create dependence. Excessive use can cause overdose. Even the most commonly used drugs like Ibuprofen, Codeine, and Opioids don’t provide adequate pain relief to some people. People who aren’t able to manage their pain properly after surgery are more likely to develop chronic pain.

Pillcheck’s DNA drug response test helps you and your doctor make safer decisions when choosing medications. Feel better, sooner and reduce side effects with the peace of mind you’re on the right medications, especially if you're taking them long term. Your personalized report covers most common pain killers. You can use your results before surgery as well to determine the most effective treatment during your recovery.

Even if you’re taking medications for your heart condition, you could still be at risk of another cardiac issue without even knowing it.

Many people take medication to manage high blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood thinners together, increasing the likelihood that one drug isn’t working as intended.

And almost 20% of people taking cholesterol lowering drugs experience major side effects because of a mis-match between their genetics and the medication.

Taking the right drugs reduces your risk of heart attack, stroke, and avoidable side effects like muscle pain and bleeding.

Find out if your prescriptions are the right ones for you with Pillcheck’s DNA analysis. The results will inform your doctor to prescribe the right drugs based on your unique genetic make-up.

Digestive system drugs not working for you? Up to one in four people get no relief from the most common acid reflux and digestive system drugs and many are at risk of serious side effects like infection and fractures. Sometimes it’s because of a mis-match between your genetics and the drug you’re taking.

Pillcheck’s DNA drug response test helps you and your doctor find the right drugs for you. You can feel better, sooner and reduce side effects while improving the safety of your treatment long term. The test covers the most commonly prescribed drugs for acid reflux, stomach ulcer, IBD, and other issues.

With every additional medication you take, your risk of side effects and the treatment not working increases.

In an independent study, Pillcheck DNA analysis recommended adjustments to 78% of prescriptions for those taking 3 or more medications at once – either switching to an alternate drug, adjusting the dosage, or discontinuing a drug altogether.
