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, 250 mg at 5 hours and 400 mg at 11 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 1.25
2 1.18
3 0.863
4 0.583
5 0.381
6 0.245
7 0.156
8 0.0993
9 0.063
10 0.04
