MTHFR

MTHFR is an abbreviation for a gene that codes for an enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. Mutations in the MTHFR gene are associated with thromboembolic and cardiovascular disease, which can lead to blood clots, stroke, embolism, and/or heart attacks.

Two mutations of MTHFR are the most common. Approximately 30-40% of the population carries a mutation at position C677T, and 20% of the population carries a mutation at position C1298T. Individuals with these mutations are at increased risk for thromboembolic and cardiovascular disease. They are also linked with recurrent miscarriages and neural tube defects (NTD) in children of women carrying the mutations.

ADHD Medication

Our ADHD Medication panel analyzes polymorphisms on genes that provide dosing guidance for many commonly prescribed psychotropic medications. Knowing how your body is likely to react to various medications allows your physician to make the most informed decision, avoiding those that may present an increased risk of adverse drug reactions or decreased effectiveness. Information gained from these results may provide the physician the greatest possibility of choosing the medications and dosing schedules likely to be the most effective with least chance of causing toxicity.

The drugs included in this panel include:

  • amphetamine (Adderall)
  • atomoxetine (Strattera)
  • bupropion (Wellbutrin, Zyban)
  • dexmethylphenidate (Focalin)
  • dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine)
  • guanfacine (Intuniv, Tenex)
  • lisdexamfetamine (Vyvanse)
  • methylphenidate (Aptensio, Concerta, Daytrana, Metadate, Methylin, Ritalin)
