Not responding: After your diagnosis has been properly confirm with another instruments such as the mini 6.0, then your physician has to figure out causes of why you're not responding. You have to rule out medical problems always making sure that you're not drinking alcohol no matter how little. You will need a pharmacogenetics test to figure out the best medication match based on your genetic metabolism.
