How cool is that? I saw my new pdoc today, after a rocky month of multiple side effects. She concluded, rightly so, that I am medication sensitive, and talked about how this might be related to a deficiency in one or two liver enzymes. She also mentioned that there is not wide-spread testing at this point, but that the human genome project and genetic testing may help in selecting medications and doses in the future to avoid problems like I have had.

Incidentally, I would suspect I am a poor metabolizer and my family heritage is Finnish. Wonder if there is a regional/genetic connection?

And this explains to some extent how once I got nearly hypomanic from an antibiotic...Biaxin XR. All the pharmacist could say when I called was "maybe your liver is not metabolizing it well." As if I had some liver pathology. Hmmmm.

Thanks for posting this.
