Re: how to implement AR residual error model in Nonmem with FOCE INT routine

Dear Marc,   This is really helpful!   The model is up running now=
.  One thing I noticed is that FOCE INT with AR model takes really long=
 time, so far it is still running after 4 hr. I also tried FOCE with AR, it=
 coverged very quickly.  About your comment on utility  of AR mode=
l,    in my case, I really can't find a better structure model, and f=
or the later covariate modeling, as I understand from a paper from Mats' =
group,  having a proper residual model could prevent inflation of t=
ype1 error.     ________________________________ Fr=
