A variety of over-the-counter and prescription medications are available on the market today to treat pain ranging from mild to severe. However, not everyone responds to medications in the same exact way due to factors such as age, weight, general health and nutrition. In addition, an individual’s genetic makeup has been consistently shown to influence how he/she will respond to certain medications. The study of how genetics can affect drug response is known as pharmacogenomics.
