Has anyone had this done before? My psychiatrist is having me do this. I’ve seen some reports online that looked pretty interesting but I am looking for more in depth explanations & reviews
My psychiatrist is trying lamotrigine on me to treat mood disorder, agoraphobia & sensory disorders. Anyone have experience with it? I go pick up the prescription tomorrow and as far as I’ve read it sounds kinda promising to help me even out my day to day life lol

It's a government conspiracy to get your DNA on file!
Seriously though, I've never done it but I think it's pretty cool it's becoming a routine part of clinical practice. It would have been unimaginable in the not so recent past.

Yeah that’s how I feel. And I don’t care if the government has my DNA. They may be able to learn something from it. I want to learn everything I can from it lol. My doctors office does their orders through Genomind. I can’t fucking figure out what kind of results I personally will get to see from it, but I imagine my doctor will give me any record of report she gets

Oh yeah I forgot to mention the lamotrigine will hopefully stop my sleep seizures & crazy muscle spasms. And I have to go be evaluated by a neurologist to determine what’s causing all the recent new neuro issues I’ve had & what’s up with the ones I’ve had forever. My psychiatrist seems really sharp & nice. She refuses to give me any serotonin altering meds until she’s seen my genetic reports ^_^

Maybe they should find a way to make people mentally ill so they're forced to take these drugs. Imagine how profitable this could be.
