I've been wondering whether you are a 'slow metaboliser' of certain medications due to inherited deficiencies affecting specific drug metabolising enzymes in the liver. This may affect dosage requirements for some medications. No doubt, this isn't the only potential problem affecting your medication response, but it could be a contributing factor.

Around 6-8% of Caucasians have poor function of the enzyme CYP 2D6. This may affect drug levels of Prozac and many other psychiatric drugs.

Do you take any medication other than psychiatric medication at all? Or any herbal medicines? Do you drink grapefruit juice? (enzyme inhibitor, esp. CYP 3A4)
