The Viegenomics Psychotropic Test analyzes how your genes affect your response to psychotropic medications commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, and other behavioral health conditions. There are dozens of medications used to treat depression and other mental illnesses and selecting the right antidepressant medication or other medication can be a challenging and frustrating process. Viegenomics Psychotropic's genetic testing enables your clinician to identify and avoid depression, anxiety and/or other medications that are unlikely to work or may cause side effects.
Personalized medicine is the unique tailoring of medical treatment to a patient's individual symptoms AND their genetic profiles.
Many who live with mental illness are vulnerable to other medical issues, sometimes taking more than one medication. The second component of this test allows you to understand how your other medications affect you, and evaluate if you are at risk for an adverse drug reaction (ADR).
