Pharmacologic Formulas

I have a new way of remembering the pharmacological formulas for USMLE step 1 and here they are:

1- For half life: CLean Life = Distributing \$7 (which is clearance X half-life = Volume of Distribution X 0.7)

2- For Maintenance Dose : Maintaining Bioavailability = CLick It or tiCKet (Maintenance dose X bioavailability = CLearance X t (dosing interval) X CK (Css concenration at steady state).

3- For Loading Dose: Loading Bioavailability = Distributing TiCKets (Loading dose X bioavailability = Volume of Distribution X CK (Css plasma concentration at Steady State)
