As we all know, drug dosage depends on the patient's age and size (height and 
weight).  I asked my teacher if gender is a factor as well and she said "no".  
I am not totally convinced and would like a second opinion.

My research reflected that drugs that alter the brain chemistry may be 
prescribed based on gender too.  How about estrogen for men and women?  Would 
like to know more.
