Yeah, responses to psychiatric meds are influenced by so many different factors. I am getting gene testing done for my variant of the serotonin transporter. This is mostly for informational purposes.

People with the SS variant apparently have poor responses to serotonin reuptake inhibiting meds. The theory is that their serotonin reuptake is already particularly low. People with the LL or LS variant have better responses.

The more I read, the more I realize there is no such thing as clearly defined bipolar, unipolar or anxiety. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of genes involved in the pool of psychiatric disorders. Each SNP has several variants. Doing the math on combinations, there are an astronomical number of different versions of 'depression' or 'anxiety' that we're talking about.
