Dr. Phil Discusses How Genomind Can Help Mental Health Treatment

Depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other mental health conditions can be a challenge for both patients and their families. When medication doesn’t seem to work, it can make daily life more daunting. 

To help a patient on his show, Dr. Phil suggests Genomind® Professional PGx Express™, a pharmacogenetic (PGx) test that can help your clinician personalize your mental health treatment based on your unique genetic makeup. It’s a way to cut down on the usual trial and error process for mental health medication. 

For the Genomind test, you need to take a quick and painless cheek swab. The test provides guidance across 10 mental health conditions and 130 medications to help your clinician determine:

  • Which medications will likely be the most effective 
  • Which medications may have side effects
  • How you metabolize medications for personalized dosing guidance

It can help patients with a variety of mental health conditions, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Substance abuse
  • Chronic pain
  • Personality disorder

The Genomind test requires a prescription. Wondering if it can help you? Learn more about Genomind here.
