DNA genetic testing analyzes how your genes may affect your outcomes with medications commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, and other psychiatric conditions. Genetic testing gives your provider results about which medications may be right for you, those that may be less likely to work for you, and medications that may have an increased risk of side effects based on your genetic makeup. In addition, testing can provide further information about gene mutations that are common. Gene mutations can affect the way a person metabolizes medications.
