No: Two different drugs. That work differently on the body. Talk to your doctor about the meds. And which would be best for you.

Male or woman: Depends. Its half life is long. Average is considered about 24 hours just to get half of it out of your body. It may be 1.5 times longer in women. And, remember, the next 24 hours just gets half of the remaining half out of you.
