Objective: In cases of drug overdose, clinicians often find it challenging to predict serum drug level and decide the optimum time for recommencing the overdosed drug. Method: This paper describes how to predict serum drug level using the principles of pharmacokinetics. Results: The proposed method and recommencement of the overdosed drug is demonstrated using a clinical case of lithium overdose. Conclusion: The proposed method can assist clinicians in predicting serum drug levels and deciding… Expand
