The GeneSight Psychotropic Test
If you’re suffering from mental health challenges, the last thing anyone wants to go through is a lengthy trial and error process with multiple medications. The process can be frustrating and leave people feeling worse, not better. Fortunately, through GeneSight’s genetic testing, doctors can get answers that quickly lead to relief. Pharmacogenomic testing can help empower your doctor with the exact information needed to prescribe you the best medication for you. By examining how your DNA responds to specific medications, this simple, painless test lets doctors know which medications may not work for you, so you can get back to feeling like yourself again. That’s the power and simplicity of the GeneSight test.
Stop wondering which medication is right for you and start on your road to recovery. Treating mental health disorders can often be a long, frustrating process as you and your doctor spend months trying multiple medications for depression and other conditions at different doses to find the medication that works for you. During this time you could end up missing work, paying for multiple doctor visits, or losing hope that you’ll ever find a medication that can help you. There’s a better way.
The GeneSight® test analyzes your DNA and helps your doctor get a better understanding of what medication might work best based on your genetic makeup. Using the GeneSight test report, your doctor can personalize your treatment plan, finding the right medication faster and avoiding medicines that may cause side effects.
The GeneSight Psychotropic Test analyzes how your genes affect your response to psychotropic medications commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia and other behavioral health conditions. There are dozens of medications used to treat depression and other mental illnesses and selecting the right antidepressant medication or other medication can be a challenging and frustrating process. GeneSight Psychotropic’s genetic testing enables your clinician to identify and avoid depression, anxiety and/or other medications that are unlikely to work or may cause side effects.
