GeneSight® Tests: Psychotropic and MTHFR

The GeneSight Psychotropic Test

The GeneSight Psychotropic test analyzes how your genes may affect your outcomes with medications commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other mental health conditions. The GeneSight Psychotropic test provides your clinician with information about which medications may require dose adjustments, may be less likely to work for you or may have an increased risk of side effects based on your genetic makeup.

The GeneSight MTHFR Test

The GeneSight MTHFR test shows whether a person has variation in MTHFR, an enzyme required to convert folic acid and dietary folate into its active form, methylfolate.
