I believe genetic testing on how drugs are metabolized is well established. There are four major pathways. Here is what the FDA says about aripiprazole and dosing if one is a poor metabolizer on CYP2D6.
The metabolism and elimination of aripiprazole is mainly mediated through two enzymes, CYP2D6 and CYP3A4. Approximately 8% of Caucasians, 3–8% of Black/African Americans and up to 2% of Asians cannot metabolize CYP2D6 substrates and are classified as “poor metabolizers” (1).
The FDA-approved drug label for aripiprazole states that in CYP2D6 poor metabolizers, half of the usual dose should be administered. In CYP2D6 poor metabolizers who are taking concomitant strong CYP3A4 inhibitors (e.g., itraconazole, clarithromycin), a quarter of the usual dose should be used (Table 1) (2).
