What causes sensitivity to medications when the liver is in good health? I always need a very minimal amount of medication and it lasts forever, I can take a Tylenol and feel it for 24 hours plus. If I take too much, I will pretty much just sleep (most medicine knocks me off my **s but I don't have like an allergic reaction well sometimes I find it hard to breathe or my heart feels funny) or as my mom found out when I was a kid, I'll get high as a kite. Is it just that I am rather small and have never taken much medication? I only take it if I absolutely must. Also medications can work unexpectedly on me at times what causes that?
