My test results show that I have a gene that does not function at the same level as the average person. There are several drugs listed in my report that could cause life-threatening side effects if I took them, and now my doctor and I can choose from alternative drugs that may work better for me.

Pros:

The OneOme test is inexpensive, easy to take, and the results are easy to understand.

Cons:

The test cost is not covered by my insurance plan, but I can pay for it with my HSA.

Hi Product Hunt! OneOme is excited to share our RightMed test with the Product Hunt community. 👏 We created the RightMed test (with Mayo Clinic) because our genetics are responsible for up to 95% of how we respond to medications. 💊 If we’re able to understand how our unique genetic makeup affects how we respond to medications, it may help our doctors prescribe us more effective medications with fewer side effects. Our headquarters (including our CLIA and CAP-certified laboratory) is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. ❄️ Using a proprietary algorithm and custom-built software, the RightMed analyzes your DNA to predict how you’ll respond to 360+ medications, used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including depression, anxiety, cardiovascular disease, pain, cancer, and many more. 🏥 Visit oneome.com/product-hunt to see everything that’s included with your purchase. (Sneak peek: it comes with a consult with a genetic counselor to help you understand your results❗️) What questions do you have for us? We’re standing by to answer them.💡

I found this very helpful, despite not being on many medications currently, as it provides a lot of peace of mind to know which medications will work for me before I need them. My provider happily ordered for me, and found the results very interesting. Being a newer technology, many providers are still being brought up to speed and educating themselves; making it all the more important for patients to advocate for themselves and make this their own standard of care!

Pros:

Affordable and actionable, plus you'll have the same results for the rest of your life!

Cons:

Not all doctors are aware of the benefits of this type of genetic testing

My 2 yo daughter has a fairly severe genetic abnormality that has caused seizures (among other symptoms). I did not have any experience with epilepsy before her, and I have learned that medications for seizure treatment are largely a crap shoot. There's a list of 15-20 drugs that might or might not work. You have to try them, trial and error, over a period of years, until you find one that works. Some of the drugs have a "1 in 15,000 people die from liver failure when taking this" warning on them. And your baby is having seizures all throughout the process. Through the use of OneOme's testing, her neurologist was able to better prioritize the list of epilepsy drugs to reduce potential side effects and help us set the dose. It meant the world to us to have additional information and a way speed up her path to a stable treatment plan. In my opinion, this kind of technology can't come fast enough and has the potential to change countless lives. Now every time I hear the doctor say "Let's start with this and see how it goes - come back in two weeks" I think "This is the old way of practicing medicine. I want the new way."

@joeschneider, thank you for sharing how the RightMed test has helped your daughter. ❤️ Stories like this are what give meaning to our work and motivate us to keep spreading the word about the RightMed test so we can continue to change lives.
I'm a huge fan of pharmacogenetic testing! When I took the test, I learned why I need a higher-than-normal dose of certain medications to get relief. My son's test results pointed the way to the best medication for him--prior to getting the RightMed guidance, we'd been running through trial and error treatments for years!
