Has anyone had MTHFR come back on their genetic testing? I paid four figures after insurance a couple years ago when a doctor ran genetic testing (unbeknownst to me) and this is one of the results. It has depression and anxiety linked to it, which runs in my family might explain that. I have an high sensitivity with medications and would definitely like the testing to find out which meds would work best. Roulette wheel scares me to death with each new med. I'm on Lexapro but am having panic attacks that are getting worse. I guess it's time to up my level on it. I've been resisting but this last one scared me.

Hi @gldnrtrvrlvr — There is another discussion for MTHFR that you may find helpful to meet other members discussing the gene.

Hyperhomocysteinemia with MTHFR C677T mutations. Does anyone have this: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/hyperhomocysteinemia-with-mthfr-c677t-mutations-does-anyone-have-this/

Are you able to discuss the meds with your doctor or pharmacist to see if there are better alternatives?
