A 29-year-old male asked:

If ur an ultra-rapid metabolizer of antidepressants, is it due only to genetics, or can non-alcoholic fatty liver also contribute to rapid metabolism?

Quite the opposite: That non-alchoholic fatty liver indicates you have other problems and need to be careful of what you consume. I recommend you consult one of the companies that evaluates your genetics to determine your specific risks to best evaluate your treatment alternatives.
