Texas Pharmacogenomics’ mental health PGx test assesses your genes to help your clinician make smarter, more personalized treatment decisions. A PGx test will look at the key genes that may influence your clinician’s treatment choice and medication dosage for depression and other mental health conditions.

I am so glad that I did this genetic testing! It has narrowed drug therapy down a great deal and everything that has been prescribed since has had no noticeable side effects. Also, drugs I have been not compatible with in the past show up on the test as well, proving that the test in fact works and allows for a refinement of treatment options. I would recommend this test to anyone and share it with your doctor for the best care possible.
