Hi this is the first time I have posted so if my question is not appropriate please do say so. 

I have a daughter who is 20 been on medication since she was 14 for major depression, and a couple of diagnosis. A persistant theme for her has been fatigue absolute exhaustion. 

We have ruled out all physcial illnesses and I am questioining if its time for a medication change, she has been on the same one since she was 14. 

Someone told me about about medical DNA testing that helps identify what medications work well and don't. You are meant to take the results to the psychiatrist which helps them in treatment planning. I am in the process of asking her doctor but wondered if anyone had used this or is it a complete gimmick. With thanks
