We all Respond Differently to Medications

Author: Dr. Bruce Carleton, MedSchoolForParents.com Expert
There is a 1% different in the genome of every individual, affecting how each person responds to a drug. For example, someone might take one dose of acetaminophen and feel strong effects, whereas someone else can take 2-3 pills and still not feel sedated.
 
 
Each child is unique and therefore each child’s response is an individualized one. Parents need to monitor children closely when they are given medications.
