Curious if anyone understands the genesight test. I don't quite understand what it means to have moderate gene drug interaction. There are 5 drugs in my use a directed section. 18 in my moderate section and 1 in my significant section. Cymbalta is in my moderate section and that's what I'm currently weaning from. Is it a common thing?

Not nearly enough research to say whether these are worth pursuing or not.


They "boast" on their website of 7 papers printed in peer-reviewed journals. From a researchers perspective, this is nothing. If it were that close to the mark, research would be all over it.


Not to say that there is nothing in it, but Genesight is a company trying to sell something. It is far from a science at present in my opinion.

Pretty much agree with IUN here. There have been nearly 100 genes linked to emotional issues. Well documented but the tests may show you have one of the gene mutations but when it comes to predicting what meds to take or not to take the results are iffy at best.
