The right medicine to feel well
and recover your health.
When it comes to your medication, one size doesn't fit all.
We have been in practice long enough to know that when it comes to prescription medication, one size does not fit all.
If you’re on medication that isn’t working, if you’ve been on meds with side effects that far outweigh the benefits, or if you’ve been prescribed many meds over the course of months or years but have yet to find one that really makes you feel better, we are here to help.
We use advanced genetic testing and other laboratory tests to determine the best choice for you.
"Why isn’t my medication working?"
Psychiatric medications alone cannot cure mental illness, but in many cases they help a person feel better despite lingering mental pain. If your medication isn’t helping you the way you had hoped, it may not be right for your unique biology.
Here are some reasons your psychiatric medication may not be working:
Your dose is too low or too high
Patients metabolize medicines at different rates—this is an important consideration when prescribing medication.
Your meds aren’t compatible with your genes
Your genes play a significant role in determining which medication works—and which doesn’t.
Your biology is exacerbating negative side effects
Everything from your age to your gut microbiome and more can determine the effectiveness of a medication.
Medication may not be the answer
Some doctors are too quick to prescribe meds without understanding the root causes of a patient’s suffering.
When your medication isn’t working, life can be unnecessarily miserable. Let us help you figure out what’s going on, and what you need to thrive.
