What is the GeneSight test?

GeneSight is a pharmacogenomic test that analyzes clinically important genetic variations that may affect your response to medications. The results of the test can provide your doctor with information about which medications may be more likely to work. It can also identify medications that may require dose adjustments or have an increased risk of side effects based on your genetic makeup. You can find more information about the GeneSight test at
