Therapeutic Drug Levels | Preparation & Expectations | Results and Values

What do the test results mean?

Each of the medications that needs to be monitored has a specific level the healthcare provider aims for. If the level is too high, the provider will reduce the amount of medication. If the level is too low, the provider will increase the amount of medication. Alternatively, the healthcare provider may change the number of times a day the medication is given.
