Be informed about which ADHD treatments will work for you or your child
If your physician is suggesting that your child starts on medications to manage their attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or if you have struggled to find the right treatments, genetic testing can offer help. Not being able to manage your symptoms and experiencing serious side effects can come from being on the wrong medicine or from receiving the wrong amount of medicine. Genetic testing shows you and your physician which medicines will work and, in some cases, how much should be taken to see the best results.
How Kailos can help you
With the Kailos test, you will discover how you or your child responds to ADHD treatments. If you are just beginning therapy, this can help your doctor select the right treatment from the start, so that you can manage your symptoms more effectively. If you are currently being treated for ADHD, genetic testing can tell you what dose is best for you. Testing will also help explain why your treatment may not be working or why you are experiencing side effects. At Kailos Genetics, we sequence your DNA and compare it to clinical study data to find which medicines and amounts are right for you.

Why Would I Respond Differently?
There are many different types of genes in your DNA that control how your body uses ADHD medications. Kailos looks very carefully at all of those genes in order to understand how you will respond to the following medicines:
- AdderallTM (amphetamine salts)
- StrategaTM (atomoxetine)
- FocalinTM (dexmethylphenidate)
- RitalinTM, ConcertaTM, DaytranaTM, MetadateTM (methylphenidate)
- DexedrineTM (dextroamphetamine)
- KapvayTM (clonidine)
- Vyvanse TM (lisdexamfetamine)
Some people have special types of genes that can cause their body to use (metabolize) these medicines differently. Two of the most important genes are called “CYP2D6” and “COMT.” People with different forms of these genes use medicine too slowly, quickly, or not at all. Genetic testing with Kailos helps you and your physician to understand which medicines will work best and how much of these medicines you should take.
