The latent period before steady-state conditions occur can be avoided by the initial administration of a loading dose equal to twice the normal dose. Similarly, when drugs are given by continuous infusion, steadystate concentrations are reached after approximately 4–5 terminal half-lives. In general, drugs are best given at intervals that are approximately equal to their terminal t 1/2 ∝ BLUK100-Calvey November 17, 2007 20:24 Plasma concentration (μg mL−1) Pharmacokinetics 6 4 2 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 Time (expressed as multiples of half-lives) 6 Fig.
