Antidepressants typically treat depression. GeneSight testing can help treat depression as it determines which antidepressants will work best for your condition. For example, it can test for multiple classes of antidepressants, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs).
Currently, the GeneSight Psychotropic test includes over 50 medications. In addition to antidepressants among other medications, this includes mood stabilizers such as Tegretol, Lamictal, and Trileptal. Mood stabilizers treat bipolar disorder as those struggling with this condition face intervals of manic and depressive states.
Also known as a dual diagnosis, those battling substance use disorder often have a co-occurring mental illness. By treating both of these conditions together, you can heal fully and effectively. Additionally, GeneSight testing in South Florida could help identify how you react to benzodiazepines among other potentially addictive substances in order to highlight risks before they are taken.
