Autism & Rx Medicines

How do I know whether there are any negative interactions between any prescription drugs?

Our tests will indicate the possible inhibitors for all prescription medications we test for and are based on your very own personal genes and variants which can enhance, delay, or prevent the efficacy of each medication you may take now and in the future.


More
Can you recommend which prescriptions might work best for me?

No, we offer personalized medical laboratory services. You will need to obtain this information elsewhere such as your pharmacy, your doctor or a healthcare provider, authorized prescriber or specialist. Under FDA rules and CLIA guidelines, we cannot provide medical advice nor recommend any specific medications.


More
Can you tell me what drugs or dosage will work best for me?

No. We are not prescribers or recommenders of any specific drug or dose. We do report which medications may work best for you, those that will simply not work, drug-to-drug interactions such as known inhibitors and Inducers,potential adverse reactions, and other valubale inofrmation, all based on your specific genomic test results.

Using FDA guidelines and the law, we cannot provide specific medical advice nor make specific recommendations for any medications.

General Questions

Can I purchase just the Autism portion of the test?

No. The benefits of the OnlyYOU® tests are maximized by receiving both the Top 20 behavioral drugs used to treat Autism together with the results of 128 Rx’s and 288 Brand Name Generics which are the most popularly prescribed pharmaceuticals. We cover 27 chronic medical conditions, many of which are so prevalent with Autism.


More
What if I have questions about which specific drugs to use for treating Autism and/or any medical issues?

By law, we do not provide any medical advice. Please share your results of your tests with your healthcare professionals and discuss your questions and concerns with them.


More
Will my insurance cover this?

No. To keep your costs as low as possible, OnlyYOU® has chosen to sell directly to you – the consumer. Insurance normally does not reimburse for our type of specific PGx testing for average consumer testing.

In the vast majority of tests, IF insurance reimbursed labs for these tests, your co-pay and out-of-pocket costs and requirements would most likely be higher than what we charge for your OnlyYOU® tests.


More
Will I ever need to re-test?

No. Your genes never change, so your tests are good for a lifetime.


More
How much do your tests cost?

$299 for the OnlyYOU® AUTISM Report and $299 for OnlyYOU® Rx-Only test.

Visit our OnlyYOU® Test pages and our Reports & Results page for more information.

Pharmacogenomics

How is a PGx test different from a blood test?

Blood tests are not used to test your genetic metabolism for medications.

Pharmacogenomic testing uses simple and safe cheek swabs, to gather your saliva samples. Since your genes never change, you need to test only once in your lifetime. Most pharmaceuticals are metabolized by genes found in your liver.


More
How often do I need a PGx test?

Once in your life, because your genes never change.
One and done! (Genes may mutate, however your varaints controlling your drug metabolism never change.)


More
What is Pharmacogenomics ( "PGx")?

“Pharma” comes from “pharmacy” (drugs) and “genomics” is about a person’s individual genetic makeup. OnlyYOU® Pharmacogenomic Tests measure your individual gene’s ability to metabolize and respond to different medications. “PGx” is the abbreviation for Pharmacogenomic testing.


More
What else can you tell me about "Pharmacogenomics?"

Pharmacogenomics is the testing of, analysis and reporting of Multiple Genes and Variants and how they all combine to affect your individual drug metabolism and your personal response, efficacy, adverse reactions and inhibitors. Pharmacogenomics is the tailoring of medication treatments to fit your individual genetic makeup, and which can lead you to ‘personalized medicine’.

Pharmaceutical companies all use Pharmacogenomic testing for their medications for population (people) studies to learn the effectiveness of and responses to their products. This data is then used to help determine appropriate sizes of dosing, frequency of doses, and much other important data.


More
Who recognizes PGx's effectiveness?

CDC (Centers for Disease Control), NIH (National Institutes for Health), FDA (Federal Drug Administration), Mayo Clinic, and other leading healthcare institutions.

Privacy

Does your test tell anyone whether someone is taking any drugs of any kind?

NO. We do not ask which medications you have taken, are taking, or might take. The benefits of the OnlyYOU® tests are maximized by having both Autism behavioral medications and the most popular prescription medications. The results of the information reported can then best be utilized for you, your child or loved ones while working with your prescribing physicians to discern medications that may work best for your health.

We protect all information about you by following the strictest HIPAA guidelines.
