Personalized Psychotropic Medication
Helping you determine which FDA-approved antidepressant and/or anti-psychotic medications could work best for you.
What our tests can do
Our Generation® Psychotropic genetic tests evaluate your individual genetic code to see how you metabolize medications, as well as how you will respond to each. How you metabolize medication means you may need a different dosage or different type of medication to get the results you want. Using our test’s information, your physician can more confidently prescribe the right medicine and dosage for you, giving you the ultimate in personalized medicine.
Conditions our tests cover:
- Bipolar Disorder
- Panic Disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Premenstrual dysphoric disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Living your best life
Knowing about a patient’s genetic profile can increase our ability to select a medication that is more likely to be effective and less likely to cause side effects. As this technology of pharmacogenomics becomes more common, more available, and more affordable, it may become a standard of care. Use of this type of testing can provide valuable clinical information not only for psychotropic medications, but also for all medications that a patient may take now or in the future.
If you believe this type of genomic medicine testing could help you and your doctor find the right prescription for you, contact the Center for Medical Genetics today to schedule and appointment.
