  Consider modeling F2 as a fraction of the = part of bioavailablilty left over after F1:
 LF1 = THET= A(1)*EXP(ETA(1))
 F1= LF1/(1+LF1)     &n= bsp;            = ;    
 LF2 = THETA(2)*EXP(ETA(2)) 
 F3 = 1-F1-F2

&n= bsp;

Coding a triple absorption model
Dear NMusers,
I am using a dual absorption model as follows (The dose is split into 2 fr= actions and the splitting fraction, THETA(.), is an estimated parameter in = the model):
TPH == LOG(THETA(.)/(1-THETA(.)))
TH  = EXP(TPH+ETA(.))/(1+EXP(TPH+ETA(.)))
F2  = TH
F1  = 1-TH
However, upon prolonged sampling we can observe a 3rd shallow ph= ase. I would like to use a 3-depot absorption process with F1, F2 and F3== 1-F1-F2. Both F1 and F2 need etas using some type of transformation such th= at neither one of them exceed 1 nor does their sum exceed 1. Can some one k= indly provide the NONMEM code.
Thanking you in advance,
M= ahesh
