Genesight Testing for Mental Health and Addiction Treatment

Start Your Journey to Recovery

Factors That Affect Medication Outcomes in Mental Health Patients

Genetics: Your genes play a crucial role in determining how your body responds to medications. They go beyond dictating physical traits like hair color, eye color, and height. Your genes can impact which medications will be effective, how quickly they work, and which side effects you may be more susceptible to.

Allergies:In some cases, allergies to certain medications can pose a challenge when determining the most suitable treatment. Even if you know which substances you’re allergic to, a new medication may trigger a reaction that can worsen your symptoms. This makes it difficult to identify the most effective medication.

Body Composition: Moreover, your individual body composition can also affect how medications impact your body. For instance, some medications are stored in fat cells, and if you have higher levels of body fat, the medication may remain in your system longer than expected.
