If you’re suffering from depression, the last thing anyone wants to go through is a lengthy trial and error process with multiple medications. The process can be frustrating and leave people feeling worse, not better. Fortunately, the GeneSight genetic test can provide doctors answers that quickly lead to relief. The GeneSight test analyzes your DNA and helps your doctor 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 your genetic makeup.
By examining how your DNA responds to specific medications such as antidepressants, this simple, painless test lets doctors know which medications may not work for you, so you can get back to feeling like yourself again. That’s the power and simplicity of the GeneSight test.
