I have several recommendations for some of the drugs in my report, and some of these recommendations seem to say different things that conflict with each other. How should I interpret the results?

Many people have more than one gene variant impacting their predicted response to certain medications. Our overall recommendation for each medication (whether it should NOT be used, be used WITH CAUTION, or used AS DIRECTED) is indicated by the coloured pill icon, however information on the possible effects of the other gene variants you have is also provided for your information.

If you have more than one gene/recommendation for a drug, and the recommendations seem to contradict each other (say opposite things), it means that your response to this medication may be unpredictable (an alternative medication may be considered if available).

If you have more than one gene/recommendation for a drug, and the recommendations seem to support each other (ex. both recommendations say the drug may not be effective for you), then the overall predicted impact may be more pronounced/amplified.
