I hear and read different answers when it comes to your body weight affecting how much of a medication you have to take. So i figured i would just ask you all. Does your body weight effect the amount(mg) of medication you have to take?

the usual answer is no, however when vets give valium to an animal the dose is calculated on the animals weight.....

Well my pdoc calculated my dose of mirtazapine for my body weight, and sometimes with meds in general theyll give kids half the adult dose.
but in general, I don't think its always the case, except for maybe lithium.
Because there are usually other factors such as tolerance, metabolism, age etc
