Everyone experiences and perceives life differently from one another. We all act and react to certain things uniquely. For those struggling with a mental health disorder such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), medication is oftentimes a recommended method for support to treat and ease certain symptoms. People may find that a certain medication can have a significant impact on their symptoms, while other medications may not serve as effective. Montana Psychiatry and Brain Health Center practices pharmacogenomic and nutrigenomic testing to examine your genes to best determine if medication can improve your quality of life.

What is Pharmacogenomic testing?
Pharmacogenomic testing allows our medical experts to examine the body’s response to certain medications through the patient’s genes. While genes determine which characteristics you will inherit from your parents like blood type and eye color, they are also used to process medications. Pharmacogenomic tests can help determine which medications may be effective for you through examination of any unique variants in your DNA.

What can Pharmacogenomic testing determine?
- If a certain medication may be effective and beneficial for you
- A proper dosage of the right medication for you
- Whether or not you may experience side effects from a certain medication
What is Nutrigenomic Testing?
Nutrigenomic testing is a means of examining how a patient’s genes perceives their diet and nutrition. This innovative approach can help you understand your body’s reaction to the consumption of certain supplements, foods, and beverages. Nutrigenomic testing can also be beneficial in assisting in the prevention of chronic diseases through the body’s exposure to specific food components.
