What is the GeneSight test?

The GeneSight Psychotropic test analyzes how your genes may affect your outcomes with certain antidepressants. The process is easy and painless.

Step 1

Your doctor collects a DNA sample by painlessly swabbing the inside of your cheek.

Step 2

The sample is sent to our lab for analysis.

Step 3

After we receive your sample, your doctor will typically get test results in about 2 days.

Step 4

Your doctor can contact our Medical Affairs team for a consultation. Your doctor can then review the results with you on your next visit.

Are you Struggling with Medication Trial & Error?

Your genes might hold the answer.

A number of factors impact the way medications work – including drug/drug interactions, food/drug interactions, lifestyle factors, age and allergies.

Your unique genetic profile determines the rate at which your body will metabolize a certain antidepressant.

If an antidepressant spends too much time in your body, it can have unintended side effects. If an antidepressant spends too little time in your body, it may be ineffective for treatment.
POOR METABOLIZER
Medication is broken down very slowly. May experience side effects at standard doses.
INTERMEDIATE METABOLIZER
Slow rate of metabolism. May have too much medication at standard doses, potentially causing side effects.
EXTENSIVE (NORMAL) METABOLIZER
Normal rate of metabolism. Has normal amount of medication at standard doses.
ULTRARAPID METABOLIZER
Medication is rapidly broken down. Medication may be removed from system too quickly to provide symptom relief.
