If your patients are suffering from depression, the last thing they want is to go through a lengthy trial and error process with multiple medications. The process can be frustrating and leave patients feeling worse, not better. Fortunately, the GeneSight Psychotropic test can provide you answers that quickly lead to relief. The GeneSight test analyzes your patient’s DNA and helps you get a better understanding of which depression medications might be more likely to work and which may require dose adjustments, may be less likely to work, or may have an increased risk of side effects based on genetic makeup.
By examining how your patient’s DNA responds to specific medications such as antidepressants, this simple, painless test lets you know which medications may not work for your patients, so you can get more of them into remission faster.
