What is the equation for Dosing Rate?

Time for plasma concentration of drug to be reduced by 50%
Halflife

When the ellimination of a drug = availability
 Steady state
 it takes 45 halflives to reach this

Fraction of the drug that enters systemic circulation (Bword)
Bioavailabilty

Giving a big dose in the beginning to reach therepeuttic window faster
Loading dose

What is the equation for Loading Dose?
 LD: Loading Dose
 Target Cp: Target plasma concentration
 Vss: Volume of distribution in steady state
 F: Bioavailability

What is the equation for Maintenance Dose?
 MD = Target C_{p} x CL / F
 MD: Maintenance dose
 Target Cp: Target plasma conc
 CL: clearance
 F: Bioavailability
