list of drugs with a narrow therapeutic range
- 0Apr 1, '13 by maryjane01I'm writing a paper and I wanted to cite a number of drugs that have a narrow therapeutic range. One example is Lithium.
Do you know of others?
Thank you for any help you can offer!

This article will examine what is considered an NTI drug, various laws related to NTI drugs, and position statements of national associations
I hope this helps
