What is GeneSight?

Understanding Your Body is the Key to Caring for Yourself

  • Mood Stabilizers | For bipolar disorder or ADHD, including risperidone, lithium, and lamotrigine
  • Stimulants & Non-Stimulants | For ADHD and can include amphetamine/dextroamphetamine, methylphenidate, or atomoxetine

The GeneSight Procedure

Simple, Quick, and Effective

First, a DNA sample will be obtained by swabbing the inside of your cheek with a soft swab. This is quick and painless and completed in your practitioner's office. GeneSight is deeply committed to ensuring the integrity and safety of all the samples they receive.

GeneSight Results

Next, the sample is sent to the GeneSight lab for analysis, and the results are typically sent to your practitioner within about two days. The results will be provided in a highly comprehensive and detailed report outlining information on the best use for over 60 mental health medications, drug interactions, and dosages. Your practitioner may choose to review the results with our team first to gain further insights into what the results mean, or they may contact you to discuss the findings.
