What is Psychiatric Pharmacogenetics Test

Treatment resistance, high relapse rates and adverse side-effects of medications are common problems in psychiatry which many clinicians will be familiar with. Up to 50% of patients with depression will not respond to first-line therapies while relapse rates of patients with bipolar disorder reach up to 70%.

Moreover, 75% of patients with schizophrenia discontinue medication within 18 months due to intolerable side-effects.

How does Psychiatric Pharmacogenetics Test work?

Specialist assessments we can offer include;

Pharmacogenetics is a powerful tool that uses a person’s genetic makeup to predict their response to treatment, and therefore determine which medication (and which dosage) is the optimal choice.

The test is a non-invasive, saliva-based test that analyses 18 key genes which significantly affect response to a wide array of psychiatric medications. Each analysis includes a comprehensive patient report.

Studies have shown clinically measurable improvement in up to 91% of patients previously labelled as treatment-resistant, with significant reductions in medication side-effects, enhanced quality of life and decreased healthcare costs. The test is an effective approach that guides clinicians to tailor treatment to the individual, to achieve improved patient outcomes in a shorter timeframe.

Some conditions the analysis can be used for:

Bipolar Disorder
Chronic pain
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Substance Abuse
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
