“Dose-correlation testing helps doctors detect problems on how patients are taking or not taking their meds. If a patient’s drug level is above or below the expected steady-state range at the prescribed dosage, the patient may not be taking the drug as directed or may have genetic or metabolic abnormalities that could require a therapy change.”
