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, the GeneSight genetic test can provide doctors answers that can quickly lead to relief. Pharmacogenomic testing helps empower your doctor with the information needed to prescribe the best medication for you. By examining how your DNA responds to specific medications such as antidepressants, 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.
