That's what I was thinking. For example if it stimulates synapses at some minimum dose, the type of synapses it acts on will saturate the ability of their target axon to carry any more signals. So doses above the minimum won't have a stronger effect.

For example, an injection of lidocaine has a minimum dose, but doses above the minimum don't make the nerves in the region any more numb.
