GeneSight Testing


Health Solutions Rooted in Your Genetics.

GeneSight testing, also known as the GeneSight Psychotropic test, is a type of genetic testing designed to assist healthcare providers in making more personalized and effective medication decisions for individuals with mental health conditions. The test analyzes a person’s genetic makeup to determine how their body is likely to respond to different psychiatric medications.

How GeneSight Testing Works

Genetic Analysis

A small sample of your DNA is collected, typically through a cheek swab or saliva sample. This sample is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

Genetic Variants

The laboratory examines specific genes that are involved in how your body processes and responds to psychiatric medications. These genes can influence factors such as how quickly a medication is metabolized or how it interacts with receptors in the brain.

Medication Recommendations

Based on the genetic analysis, the GeneSight report categorizes medications into three groups:

Benefits of GeneSight Testing

Personalized Treatment

GeneSight testing aims to provide healthcare professionals with information to help tailor medication choices to an individual's genetic makeup, potentially leading to more effective treatment outcomes.

Reduced Trial and Error

Traditional medication selection for mental health conditions often involves a trial-and-error approach, which can lead to frustrating and time-consuming experiences. GeneSight testing may help reduce this trial and error process.

Minimized Side Effects

By identifying medications that are likely to have a positive response and fewer side effects, GeneSight testing can help individuals avoid unnecessary discomfort and adverse reactions.

Important Considerations

Complementary to Clinical Evaluation

GeneSight testing is a tool that assists healthcare professionals in treatment decisions, but it is not a substitute for thorough clinical evaluation and professional judgment

Not Definitive

The results of GeneSight testing provide probabilities and guidelines, but individual responses to medications may still vary.

Insurance Coverage

It is important to check with your insurance company to understand the coverage and cost of GeneSight testing, as it may not be fully covered by all insurance plans.

Keep in mind that while GeneSight testing can offer valuable insights, it’s just one tool among many that Blue Sky Medical utilizes to reach informed treatment decisions. Blue Sky Medical will consider your genetic results along with your medical history, symptoms, and other factors when developing a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
