Should I have Genetic or Neurotransmitter testing for psychiatric or mental health medications?
As a healthcare professional it is always my goal to carefully determine what medications work with specific patients. My clients who have depression, anxiety, bipolar, or schizophrenia all have different medication needs. Genetic testing give me another tool to get the medications right from the beginning.
Whether you have a new mental health diagnosis or a chronic mental health condition, testing for the genetic predispositions for medications and knowing neurotransmitter levels is incredibly helpful when making a decision about medications.
Pohala offers genetic and neurotransmitter testing for mental health to all patients who request the process.
Many insurances are now covering this testing.
