Peak Levels and Half-life


#1

Is there a constant relationship between the peak level and half-life of any given substance?

Good question. Bump.

Last poster -- would you mind posting under a different handle? I've been posting under the name "Zev", which is my real name, here for years. Thanks.

The answer is no. Every substance is unique
in terms of its relationship between peak
level and half-life. That's why
pharmacokinetic studies are done on most
pharmaceuticals.
