Example text

In a drug overdose, nonlinear pharmacokinetics may occur, that is the plasma concentration does not increase in proportion to the dose since one or more of the pharmacokinetic processes reaches saturation. Hence, calculation 19 of dose from the volume of distribution can be substantially wrong and misleading. The recommendation is to use the volume of distribution only when an overdose has not been taken and there is a reasonable chance of equilibrium. Elimination of drugs Most drugs are eliminated from the body by metabolism in the liver and/or by excretion of the drug and its metabolites by the kidneys.

Elimination of drugs Most drugs are eliminated from the body by metabolism in the liver and/or by excretion of the drug and its metabolites by the kidneys. Other mechanisms for drug metabolism and excretion also apply for some drugs and poisons. g.

1. In general, drugs that are readily metabolised by liver enzymes have lower bioavailabilities than drugs that are not metabolised as readily by the liver. Some drugs are metabolised in the liver to active forms. While the effect of first-pass metabolism is to reduce the action of the parent drug, a drug that is administered orally and metabolised in the liver to active forms has a different profile of activity from that when the drug is given parenterally (not through the gastrointestinal system).
