Calculation of Drug Concentration

Non-Uniform Multiple Oral Dose Regimen

A patient is started on a drug at an oral dose of 250 mg at time zero, 300 mg at 5 hours and 250 mg at 7 hours (makes no sense but a nice random regimen :- all times are from time zero). Using the data shown in the table below calculate the drug concentration at 24 hr after the first dose time. Assume a one compartment linear model applies to this drug in this concentration range.

Concentration versus Time after a Single 100 mg dose
Time (hr) Concentration (mg/L)
0 0
1 4.86
2 4.09
3 3.26
4 2.58
5 2.05
6 1.62
7 1.29
8 1.02
9 0.809
10 0.642
11 0.509
12 0.404
13 0.32
14 0.254
15 0.201
16 0.16
17 0.127
18 0.1
19 0.0795
20 0.0631
21 0.05
22 0.0397
23 0.0314
