Genetic Testing and Antidepressant Prescribing

"Can genetic testing help doctors better prescribe antidepressants? There’s quite a debate."
from Ilana Marcus at the Washington Post, 31 March 2019.

As the title suggests, there are mixed opinions and conflicting evidence about whether testing for genetic variations (in metabolism or other pathways related to drug response) can help people find medications that are likely to help them and not cause bad side effects.

If you've had this kind of testing either before, or in the course of trying antidepressants, what has been your experience?
