AbstractDosage regimen plays the most important role in obtaining the desired therapeutic outcomes. The
focus perpetually is on the design of doses, their intervals and duration to acquire the optimum
response. Many factors like age, gender, weight, body surface area, pathological state play a role
in formulating these regimens and each factor is given importance in deciding regimen that gives
the optimum response. The experiments gradually reveal the correct regimens after repeatedly
being worked upon. Different parameters such as Cmax, Tmax, are calculated and estimated in
order to decide by which dose and its interval the therapeutic level is maintained in the blood.
Therapeutic drug monitoring is one of the most important aspects in dosage regimen where the
narrow therapeutic index drugs are given and designed in such a way as to get the therapeutic
response with minimized toxicity.
