What is GeneSight?
GeneSight® is an advanced genetic testing tool for mental health treatment recommendations.

GeneSight testing saves you a great deal of trial and error when it comes to getting the relief you need.
In a clinical study of the GeneSight psychotropic test, patients saw a 50% improvement in symptom relief when compared to patients who pursued a normal course of non-customized treatment.
What kind of GeneSight testing is available?
There are several types of GeneSight testing, including:
The psychotropic GeneSight test analyzes your body’s response to drugs for neuropsychiatric conditions like depression, anxiety, OCD, and bipolar disorder. It shows results for dozens of common neuropsychiatric drugs like Wellbutrin®, Xanax®, Prozac®, and Ambien®.
The MTHFR test measures your body’s quantity and use of folic acid. You must convert folic acid into its active form, L-methylfolate, so you can make important neurotransmitters like dopamine. The MTHFR test tells your doctor whether you need supplemental folic acid or L-methylfolate.
GeneSight tests to help Integrative Direct Primary Care design the most effective and customized treatment plan based on you.
