A big factor (probably bigger than weight) is genetic differences in liver enzymes. This can have a difference on level of drug and/or active metabolites.

Really, unless one is using therapeutic monitoring (say Depakote, lithium or nortriptyline) the dose should not be a specific target IMHO. Some people do well on low doses, some need higher doses.
