Lafene Health Center now offers the GeneSight Psychotropic genetic test. This test analyzes how an individual's genes may affect their outcomes with medications commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other mental health conditions. The testing can reveal which medications require a dose adjustment, are less likely to work or have an increased risk of side effects based on the patient’s DNA. The sample for the test is obtained by a quick swab of the inside of the cheek.
The GeneSight test can be completed after an initial consult with a provider at Lafene Health Center. If you are interested, please go to the myLafene+ patient portal or call Lafene Health Center to schedule an appointment with one of our providers.
