This section provides information only about this specific pharmacogenomic test. Actually after about the 8th or 9th dose I started to feel a certain damping effect on the pain. The cytochrome P450 (CYP)1 enzyme debrisoquine 4-hydroxylase known as CYP2D6 is involved in the oxidative metabolism of many different classes of commonly used drugs, including neuroleptics, tricyclic antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, β-adrenoceptor blockers, and antiarrhythmics (1)(2). I get migraine and am a UM. My dentist gave me 1 numbing shot, it took 3 all in all to work.
