DNA Testing for Medication
Genetic testing for psychiatric medication can shows insight into how your genes may affect medication tolerance or outcomes. Specific genes you may have inherited can determine how you respond to medications to treat depression, anxiety, mood disorders, ADHD and other mental health conditions. Knowing how your DNA may respond to specific medication can help guide treatment choices, require dose adjustments, or risks of potential side effects. This testing may be covered by insurance. In some instances there are lower cost options available.
