Personalized medicine and pharmacogenomics. High doses of Antipsychotics


#1

Does anyone here have any experience or knowledge about Personalized medicine and pharmacogenomics? Any information please would be helpful. My son is taking the highest dosage of clozapine as well as two other antipsychotics. I don’t see the point or what is being achieved with high doses of antipsychotics where it has high risk of physical adverse affects.

I’ve been told they are slow but with patience I don’t see how they could hurt.

We took our son to Mensah Medical in Chicago. I think it did help a little but couldn’t stay on it with consistency since every few months he would have to go to hospital.

My son said he thought it was a scam.
