How long is 25 hour half life?

How long is 25 hour half life?

Depends.: I am assuming you are talking about the half life of a drug. A drug with a 25 hours half life means that after 25 hours, the blood concentration of the drug will be halved. So at hour zero it's 100%. At 25 hours , the concentration is 50%. At 50 hours, it's 25%. At 75 hours, it's 12.5% etc. Please note that using half lives is an oversimplification and doesn't always correlate with drug effect. ...Read more

However, if you need treatment, then we need you to see your own family doc and/or psychiatrist. Btw, we're not supposed to actually give "advice" but rather just some general ideas etc... ...Read more

Is it okay to split drug pills in half?

This can be a way to lower the cost as the larger pill frequently costs less than two smaller pills. Capsules cannot be split, as the contents spill out uncontrollably although capsules can be opened and the contents put in a slurry for ingestion if the capsule cannot be swallowed. ...Read more

How should I train for my first half marathon?

Depends: Much depends on your current shape and mileage. You may need to do pretraining training. Find some different training plans at the bookstore.

As you increase your miles, you mix speed with distance. ...Read more
