If I get nauseas and headaches on my birth control pills dos that mean I need more or less estrogen?
Difficult pharmacogn: Sometimes the dose-response relationship for hormones is not linear but complex - such as a horseshoe-shape, where side effects are associated with low and high doses, but not optimum doses.
