GeneSight Testing at Dana Behavioral Health

The GeneSight Psychotropic test is a pharmacogenomic tool that analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. It’s designed to inform your doctor about any genes you have that may impact the way you respond to certain medications, which will help optimize your treatment.

It’s a very simple process. First, your doctor collects a DNA sample by painlessly swabbing the inside of your check. The sample is then sent to the GeneSight lab for analysis, and your doctor will have the results in about two days. They can then review your treatment plan to make improvements.

Different medications affect us in different ways. GeneSight testing can provide some helpful insights into well-known drugs, including Xanax, Elavil, Abilify, Saphris, Rexulti, Wellbutrin, Sinequan, Cymbalta, Lexapro, Lunesta, Prozac, Prolixin, Invega, Paxil, Trilafon, Inderal, Seroquel, and more.
