Subject: Syntax for POSTHOC option
Date: Fri, 23 Mar 2001 10:31:6 +0800

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a new user of NONMEM. Now I want to use "POSTHOC" to obtain individual pharmacokinetic parameters for each patient, but I don't know how to make use of it. Is the record "$ERROR" the same as others without "POSTHOC"? Would you like to describe the process for me in details? Thank you very much for you great help. I'm looking forward to get your early reply.

Best wishes

Sincerely yours

Dear hzding,

The POSTHOC step is implemented by simply adding this option to the $ESTIMATION record in your control stream when using METHOD=0 (the default estimation method). The $ERROR record remains the same.

For more information, please refer to the manuals, particularly:
Guide VIII - pages 65-68
Guide VII - Conditional Estimation Methods
Guide V - pages 138-139
Guide IV - pages 35-37
