Medications with FDA Genetic Warnings
Genetic factors influence the metabolism and transport of thousands of drugs. The drugs listed below are required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to provide specific pharmacogenetic information on their package inserts, because of their known potential for adverse effects. The drug labeling describes drug exposure and clinical response variability; adverse event risk; genotype-specific dosing; mechanisms of drug action; and polymorphic drug target and disposition genes.
