You'll hear debate about using pharmacogenetic testing to guide treatment for depression, ADHD, and other mental health conditions.

These tests are different than the direct-to-consumer genetic tests (23andMe, etc)...which are being promoted to tell people if they are at higher risk for medical conditions such as Alzheimer's or breast cancer.

A goal of pharmacogenetic testing is to identify gene variations that may predict how a patient will respond to certain meds.
