Many of us did use kinetic testing to avoid the hit-and-miss process with psychotropic meds. I think some doctors are insecure having a test tell them what they should prescribe for their patients. You can go to the website and put in your zip code and they will furnish you a list of doctors who will administer the test and explain the results. Then you can take it to your clinic and you are doctor and have it made a part of your permanent medical record. When doctors see these reports they understand that this is something they should be doing because of the wealth of information, page after page after page, detailing how you will metabolize three different classes of drugs is just invaluable.

Thanks, that's a great idea and may stop a lot of my adverse drug reactions and bad side effects that are occurring. I'm currently trying to reach my Psychiatrist because we agreed that I'd increase my Lexapro to 15 mg. and that's when I realized it was the medicine that's been causing quite a few problems since I went on it almost a year ago and hadn't put the two together. When you have so many medical conditions going, it's harder to determine what is causing what. I looked up the side effects of Lexapro in great detail and found side effects that I've been struggling with. Now to get through to the doc. They won't take a message and I can't find a way to leave a message for her on her website! I'll look one more time then I'll be walking into the office.
