ANTIDEPRESSANTSpgx

Antidepressants pharmacogenetics testing
Pharmacogenetics DNA test for antidepressants
Adequate response to antidepressant treatment. Antidepressant drugs have many side effects and problems of inefficiency. They are also likely to interact with other medicines. This variability can be reduced by studying the patient genetics.

Sample type:

Antidepressants DNA test

Depression is a dysphoric mood and apathy that interferes with the ability to perform usual daily activities. Depression can be triggered by unfavorable life events, but when it has no definite cause or lasts over time it becomes pathological.

Depressive disorders are treated with different drugs acting on the central nervous system at the level of the synapse, using various mechanisms to increase neurotransmitters (mainly serotonin and noradrenaline).

These drugs are classified into the families of tricyclic and heterocyclic antidepressants, inhibitors of monoamine reuptake (two groups that prevent neurotransmitters from being removed from the synaptic cleft) and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), which increase the number of neurotransmitters blocking their elimination through the MAO enzyme.

Antidepressant drugs have numerous side effects and problems of inefficiency. They are also likely to interact with other medicines. Set of factors that make them difficult to select and dose. This variability can be reduced by studying the patient's genetics and the interactions they may have.

The ANTIDEPRESSANTSpgx profile studies the main categories and drugs related to the treatment of depression. The report includes an interpretation of the results for the 29 most frequent prescription drugs.

Interpretation of the report in polytherapy

In this report, the "green" labeling of a certain drug with the patient's genes indicates that it can be prescribed in the standard dose conditions disclosed in the prospectus or those recommended by the physician. This applies in the case of monotherapy.

However, if the patient takes several medications, which is very common, although in the report would appear in "green" can cause adverse effects due to possible interactions between them, which can sometimes be severe, either by toxicity or by therapeutic failure.

Drugs are chemicals that may interfere the normal metabolism of other drugs. Interferences that are also applicable to the chemical substances of various medicinal plants and food supplements.

Consequently, the whole of the medication, together with the consumer products or life habits of the patient, must undergo an evaluation of pharmacological interactions.

Consulting g-Nomic® Pharmacogenetics interpretation software, before prescribing, is an effective aid to avoid most adverse effects or therapeutic failures due to medication.

g-Nomic® interrelates all drugs, herbs, nutritional supplements and lifestyle, with the patient's genes. It also advises the most appropriate dose to prescribe.
