In case you've never heard of it, there is a genetic test available that analyzes how your body reacts to different psychotropic drugs, its called GeneSight. It covers antidepressants, hypnotics, antipsychotics and mood stabilizers.
I'm sharing here because after several years, multiple doctors & hospital affiliations, and numerous medications through trial and error, I just recently heard of GeneSight. My new doc offered it, and I jumped at it. They took a simple cheek swab, and at my next appt I had a full report to go over with my doc and use to evaluate my medications and options.
Essentially, it analyzes your specific gene markers and gives a guide on how your body reacts to medications; elements like if you metabolize certain chemicals regularly, if you're prone to more side effects, etc. So, to help anyone who has had to go through all that blind trial and error, and save those from that experience, ask your doc about this test!
