I had to drop out of college and quit my job. I just could not function as I wanted. My antidepressants were not working…. I was not working. Prior to the test I tried at least six different medications. I had side effects with each. I did not want to just live with the side effects of the different medications. I talked to my therapist and nurse practitioner and they were worried about me. My nurse practitioner ordered the GeneSight test. The process was so easy. It took a few minutes for them to swab my cheek. I had results in less than a week. We learned I do not tolerate most antidepressants. They do not metabolize properly in my system. So, I was taken off the medications I was taking and began a different medicine. My life is back! GeneSight is amazing. It gave me options to not have to live with side effects. I wish everyone dealing with mental illness could use this test to improve their lives. I have the confidence to return to college in the fall. I am ready to go live my life!
