  1. Antidepressant DNA test

    Hi MsLLL! Thank you so much for the well wishes. Viibryd ( Vilazodone ) is a fairly new SSRI(FDA approved in 2012 I think). It claims to have a very low occurrence of sexual side effects. I'm glad that you found the right drug for you.
  2. Antidepressant DNA test

    Hello all, I know that this post is a bit dated, but I wanted to add to it. I also did this DNA (GeneSight) test to determine which AD might work best for me because I really don't want to be a Lab Rat.. It was done with a swab in the mouth and took about a week for results. The results were in 3 Tiers: Red being Significant Gene-Drug Interaction which supposedly are the drugs that wouldn't work well for me. A few of the drugs that fell in this Tier for me were Celexa, Lexapro, Wellbutrin and Paxil. Yellow being Moderate Gene-Drug Interaction which showed drugs like Prozac, Zoloft, Effexor as being so, so for me. Green being Take As Directed. I guess that this is the mother load for me. It listed Prestiq, Fetzima, Pamelor, Viibryd, Desyrel and a few others as being my best match. I decided to give Viibryd a try because of it's low occurrence of sexual sxs. We shall see! I hope this works.
