What is the GeneSight Test?
GeneSight is genetic testing that analyzes how your genes may affect medication outcomes. It can help you and your provider tailor treatment plans based on your unique genetic makeup, potentially making the medications more effective and reducing the chances of side effects.
The GeneSight Psychotropic test does this by looking at important genetic differences to understand how your body processes and reacts to medications for mental health.
Can you benefit from the GeneSight test?
The success rate of patients responding to the first medications they’re prescribed for mental health is lower than 50%!
Genetic testing can help patients who:
Have had a previous medication fail to help
Are experiencing unwanted side effects
Those struggling with conditions like ADHD, anxiety, or depression
The GeneSight test can be ordered by our provider and is not exclusive to members. The test is a simple cheek swab taken in our office. We will then send your sample off for analysis. After processing, your results are interpreted. Our provider will then review the results and reach out to you.
* At this time, GeneSight is only available at our Tallahassee Clinic.
