Medication trial and error can feel frustrating.

We know the process of finding medications for mental health conditions like depression, anxiety or ADHD can be frustrating, time-consuming and debilitating. The GeneSight® test may help.

Fewer than 50% of individuals with depression respond to their first medication.

Is the GeneSight test right for you?

  • Has a medication failed you in the past?
  • Is your current medication not working?
  • Does your medication cause unwanted side effects?

What is the GeneSight Psychotropic test?

Like how your unique fingerprint unlocks your phone, the GeneSight test unlocks your genetic “fingerprint”, providing insight which a clinician can use to inform your mental health medication treatment and may improve your chances of finally feeling like yourself again.

7 clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals support the GeneSight test’s effectiveness.

Over 2 million people have taken the GeneSight test.

The GeneSight Promise

Insurance can be complicated, and we want you to feel comfortable knowing what you’ll owe. We promise that if your cost could be more than $330, we’ll call you before we process your test.

Over 98% of patients pay $330 or less*

A comprehensive report, personalized for you and shared with your clinician.

The GeneSight Psychotropic report may help you avoid multiple medication trials by providing information about which medications may require dose adjustments, be less likely to work, or have an increased risk of side effects based on your genetic information.

The report also includes information on how a patient’s smoking status may affect their body’s metabolism of certain medications.

The report classifies over 60 mental health medications into four categories:

Use as Directed
Moderate Gene-Drug Interaction
Significant Gene-Drug Interaction
No Proven Genetic Markers

Your provider will review the results as a part of your overall exam to help inform your unique treatment plan.

Your sample is handled with care.

Generally, samples are destroyed within 60 days of receipt, however, the samples may be destroyed at any time after the testing is completed upon request.

The process is a simple cheek swab that will be placed in a paper envelope. This drying process ensures the samples remain stable by preventing microbial growth and breakdown of DNA.

Our lab is located here in the United States, in Mason, OH.
