Genetic Testing

I am happy to offer and coordinate cutting-edge genetic testing to help elucidate and inform the best possible choice of drugs for common psychiatric conditions.

GENOMINDS GENETIC TESTING

“Personalised medicine” is a somewhat new medical model that uses patient-specific information, such as your own genetic makeup (or genotype) to enable an individualised approach to treatment. For example, up to half of all patients may respond poorly to the first psychiatric medicine they try because everyone’s body is different, partially based upon their own individual genetic makeup.

HOW GENOMIND GENETIC TESTING CAN HELP?

Genomind Professional PGx ExpressTM looks at 24 key genes that are associated with mental health. A simple mouth swab is taken and sent over to their laboratory in the USA. This can identify a drug that may work for you before you even try the medicine. With this information, together with your medical history, a clinician may be able to make a more informed treatment decision.

Genomind Professional PGx Express supports the genetic profile for help in predicting medication response for Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, Schizophrenia and Substance Misuse.
