The excretion of drugs from the kidneys, like the absorption of drugs from the gastrointestinal tract, depends on lipid solubility, the degree of ionization of drugs, and the pH of the urine. Nonionized lipid-soluble drugs are resorbed and not eliminated. Generally, drugs that are bases are excreted when the urine is acidic, whereas acidic compounds are excreted in greater quantities if the urine is alkaline. 3) poisoning, alkalinization of the urine with sodium bicarbonate is helpful in eliminating the phenobarbital.
POTENCY AND EFFICACY Potency refers to the lowest dose that will produce a maximum effect. Efﬁcacy refers to the inherent ability to exert an effect. Morphine in a dose of 10 mg given subcutaneously produces analgesia, but a 2-mg dose of dihydromorphinone (Dilaudid) can accomplish the same degree of analgesia. 7). 7 (a) Dihydromorphinone is more potent than morphine but is equally efﬁcacious. (b) Propranolol is a competitive antagonist at adrenergic receptors. 8 (a) Atropine is a competitive antagonist at cholinergic receptors.
Gastric Emptying Time Because drugs are mostly absorbed from the upper part of the small intestine, the rate of gastric emptying plays a crucial role in drug absorption. If rapid absorption is desired, drugs should be taken on an empty stomach. Meals, especially those with a high fat content, retard absorption. The desire for rapid absorption of drugs necessitates that the interactions between food and drugs be monitored carefully. Drugs such as clindamycin and lincomycin should be taken on an empty stomach.
