Outliers on the Dose-Response Curve: If the Problem Is Not Concentration, Then What?


Collapse Box


This column addresses the two primary reasons some patients do not respond as usual to a medication. Such patients may not benefit either because they are uniquely sensitive to the adverse effects of the drug and/or because the drug does not work on the correct mechanism of action to treat the illness. This column explains and reviews these concepts and provides a rationale for using such information prospectively to increase the likelihood of an optimal outcome with the prescribed treatment.
