Some medications must be maintained at a specific level within your body, and will require periodic blood or urine testing to measure the level. You will not get the maximum effect from the medication if the level is too low and you may experience toxic effects from the medication if the level is too high in your body. Carefully follow dosage instructions if your doctor has prescribed this medication for you.
