There are some medications that require specific blood levels in order for you to receive maximum effect from the medication. Other medications have levels that must be monitored to avoid possible serious side effects or complications from excessive levels of the drug. Your doctor will inform you if you need regular blood testing for appropriate and therapeutic levels of any medications. See Therapeutic Drugs for information and therapeutic/toxic blood levels.
