I have suffered from depression for many years. I have had major episodes and have tried many different medications over the years. I have been hospitalized before since I was not able to function or handle life’s stresses. It has been hard to find something that was helpful. Then I used the GeneSight test and it was very easy. The nurse took a cheek swab and we got results quickly. I was afraid the results would come back and tell me that nothing would work. I had had so many medication failures in the past that I was afraid. I did not think it would be as helpful as it was. The test results were more specific than I thought they would be. The test showed that the SSRI’s I have tried are not going to work for me. I have been on all of them and also taken them in combination. Personally, it made me feel like I was not crazy or something was wrong with me. I am just more stable now. I am functioning better. I have many life stresses going on now that I can handle. I recommend GeneSight to any one with depression or anxiety. It is very helpful. Things get to a point where you need something like this to help you. It saves a lot of time and money. As a nurse I know it can be a long process to find the right medications. GeneSight can shorten the time it takes to get on the right medication.
