Further, some drugs are activated by breaking down, whereas some are inactivated by breaking down, and some are make more removeable (e.g. For reasons I will not go into, I have been prescribed both codeine and morphine, separately, at several occasions. Hehe. I am a person in recovery, so I am very careful using this class of drugs. I have had my genes mapped as a test participant at my Dr. Office. Also, while ultrarapid metabolizers are quite rare among White people of European Descent, for other populations such as North African and Middle Eastern persons, this mutation is MUCH more frequent like 30%. Is that also an observation in a rapid metabolizer? I’ve been prescribed hydrocode afterwards, but only ever take a half of one that day because they make me really loopy. I suspected, several years ago, that there was something malfunctioning in the way I metabolize drugs. P450 enzyme CYP2D6 is of importance in medicinal chemistry, pharmacology and medicine. Although testing is incressing, I am shocked at the lack of medical professionals who are chosing not to educate themselves about the different reactions caused by genotypes which would make them more comprehensive as a person who supposedly went into a profession to help people. What is really sad is that the instances of failed therapies from antidepressants is extremely high in CYP2D6 UMs because the drugs have no effect unless administered at super high doses and most physicians are not aware of the CYP2D6 UM anomalies thus are not willing to administer remedies in the high doses necessary. An adult dose of detromethorphan cough syrup is an invitation to see the walls bend and change colors.

That’s fucked! Anail, you are so right. The headaches started about half way in. Hi Im Brittany, I am a URM, i have had almost every pain med and depression med tested and none work. Deviations in the number and type of allelic variants as well as gene copy number yield four CYP2D6-predicted metabolic phenotypes: ultra-rapid metabolizer (UM), extensive metabolizer (EM), intermediate metabolizer (IM), and poor metabolizer (PM) [12, 15]. A specific dose cannot be recommended for CYP2D6 indeterminate metabolizers. No severe adverse effects were seen in the UMs in our study most likely because we used for safety reasons a low dose of only 30 mg. Codeine and tramadol are metabolized in the liver to their active forms by an enzyme called cytochrome P450 isoenzyme 2D6 (CYP2D6). Bad news I’ve tried just about every pain med out there. My swab was conclusive that I am a CYP2D6*2xN (UM-Ultrarapidmetabolizer). I don’t know…should I get checked for CYP2D6 ultrarapid metabolism or is it just me? However, last night, it was VERY obvious. “Hi. I remember it all. 4 There are four basic types of metabolizers. . My 3 year old was bouncing off the walls last night after a normal dose of Benadryl. Ultra-rapid metabolizer : Paroxetine . Your email address will not be published. enzymes that help with the removal of most of the drugs and toxins from the human body Once the concentration of parent drug saturates the capacity of the 2D6 enzyme to remove it, the drug concentration continues to build up rapidly over time.

They tried IV Paracetamol in a drip which had no effect at all, and then resorted to Codeine which worked (of course) until my BP and RR fell and I began to feel very sick. I’m a UM. What recreational drugs (i.e above medical rec doses )shuld MJPE take to work out for sure if their CYP2D6 is slow or normalish and if it may be their CYP2A enzyme that is slightly slow or non active rather than their CYP2D6 or if conversely their CYP2D6 is slightly slow but their CYP2A is slightly fast… Micahel Jackson pink elephant is as much intrested in this from a scientific point of view to roughly work out their rough different enzyme abilities as they are to try recreational doses. I was cooked.. I’m now on subutex 120mg most day until Sept 1….i feel you all.. We need to do something.

Interesting that you say that about dextromethophan cough syrup. SO, long story short, I do not achieve the relief that a normal netabolizer by this gene would. Ultra-rapid metabolizers (UM) carry multiple copies of functional alleles leading to excess activity. They are specialists in Pain Management. I have had drug screens in the past come back negative for oxycodone which was puzzling to me. The wide variety of 2D6 mutations and heterogeneity in their substrate binding and instance and severity in the population make this a more difficult issue to deal with – a simple test wouldn’t necessarily tell you much.

Interesting fact about depression and CYP2D6 UMs: we have statistically lower than normal levels of Dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. Dextromomethorphan (DM in cough suppressants) causes me to vomit like a person who just drank while on antabuse. The study of how genes like CYP2D6 affect the way you break down medicines is called pharmacogenetics (FAR mah coh je NEH tiks). I’m sad to say, I prefer the morphine.

I have this plus other enzyme deficiencies making my life hell with regard to any kind of medical care. CYP2D6 is one of the most polymorphic CYP genes in humans among the CYPs, accounting for around 80 different allelic variants and 130 genetic variations described .The CYP2D6∗4 allele was the first defective CYP2D6 variant allele to be identified (in 1990) and constitutes the main explanation for the poor metabolizer (PM) phenotype among Caucasians .

Ultra rapid metabolisers will get more pain relief and more chance of euphoria from the oral medication. My pain specialists never doubted me, since I had more than 20 years of doctor’s notes where I complain about pain and they look for it without finding a physiological problem to ‘fix’. Codeine appears to work about normally. This website also provides information on the. Not bad – but by then I also started to notice the first signs of nausea.

Substrates, inhibitors? But Michael Jacksons pink elephant also takes codeine and as far as she is aware her reponse to codeine is about normal and it does relieve pain at the stated doses, not exactly indicative. She also received a card that noted Madilyn was a normal metabolizer of the CYP2D6 and CYP2C9 enzymes, as well as an ultra-rapid metabolizer of CYP2C19. Presumably, the pain relief — and the not completely unpleasant buzz — that you get from codeine is due to the fact that your body partly (5-10 %) converts it into morphine, which enters your central nervous system, finds opiod μ-receptors and yada, yada…. For several reasons, CYP2D6 is especially troublesome … And, from my own experiences, I think I can state that they really don’t care.
