28. Are drugs designed for non-American size women?

The article says the average American woman is 166 pounds. Shouldn't drugs be designed for the average, so that the upper limit of its effectiveness isn't right at the average?

I remember a few years ago cruise ships, which are mostly Scandinavian, had to be American-sized, with wider chairs and other items to accommodate the larger average size of Americans. If cruise ships can do it, why can't pharmaceutical companies?
