Genes Could Determine Your Response To Antidepressants

There are 5 comments on the WIAT-TV Birmingham story from Jan 25, 2008, titled Genes Could Determine Your Response To Antidepressants. In it, WIAT-TV Birmingham reports that:

“To our knowledge, our results provide for the first time evidence that genetic variants in the [gene for P-gp] account for differences in the clinical efficacy of antidepressants, most likely by influencing their access to the brain”

How well two popular antidepressants work may depend on your genes. German researchers find subtle genetic variations predict how effective citalopram and venlafaxine are in patients. via WIAT-TV Birmingham

I wouldn't believe this at all considering the number of person hurt on these drug. The best solution is to not take the psychotropic drugs.

Glad to hear. Citalopram is the only antidepressant working with me. Continue the good work, please!

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#ysae for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/LXY9gr only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
