My anti-depressant was not working and my psychiatrist did not want to try a medication that could be detrimental to my mental health. She suggested the GeneSight test, and I eagerly agreed. The test was easy, a simple cheek swab, and the results came back quickly. The report showed that I was not taking the best medication for me, so we switched to one that the report showed was better for me. The results showed that I have a genetic mutation of the MTHFR gene that impedes the production of folate, which is critical to brain function. The GeneSight test has changed my life and it has changed my family’s life.
