This report looks at a subset of our 24 gene panel and is specific to the treatment of anxiety, depression and related disorders. The information provided by this report is designed to help clinicians make more informed treatment decisions, and to help avoid the painful process of trial and error.*

Each report looks at both Pharmacodynamic and Pharmacokinetic .
Pharmacodynamic: this refers to the effect that a drug has on your body. For example, a drug might bind to a certain receptor in your brain, or you might make a certain protein that increases your risk of a drug induced rash. These are all pharmacodynamic parameters.
Pharmacokinetic: this refers to the effect that your body has on a drug. For example, your body can absorb and metabolize certain drugs at different speeds which can help personalize medication dosage. These speeds are different between people and are known as pharmacokinetic parameters.

The gene variations report provides the patient genotype for each of the gene variants on our panel. The color coded genotype reflects the patients inherited alleles, or variants, at a particular location within the tested gene. The report also provides specific therapeutic guidance related to certain medications, or non-drug options like exercise or TMS.
Medication falls into two categories:
Each patient report includes a gene-drug interaction summary. The gene-drug interaction summary provides information about how the patient’s genetic profile interacts with medications commonly used in psychiatry. This summary table lists medications in alphabetical order by generic name and drug class.
Diagnosis-specific Summary Pages will provide a visual plot of drugs and augmentation strategies for a particular condition. The medication position will shift left or right based on known gene-drug interactions.
Unique to Genomind, every test comes with an Rx MetaType Card that our expert team designed. To learn more CLICK HERE.
