[NMusers] variation of time values in output data

Dear nonmem users,



We used the option “-2 RATE” of NONMEM (actual rate of infu=
sion is
unknown): within the control stream:

D1=THETA(1)

Moreover, since several infusions are given to the same patients, we have
added an inter-occasion variability on D1 (see code below)*



We obtained nice fit BUT in the OUTPUT DATA: TIME values corresponding to
blood samples (and DV) are not identical to the actual TIME values of the
INPUT data !?

It seems that NONMEM program adjusts rate values, their interoccasion
variability, and sampling times to have a good fit



*How to fix TIME value corresponding to blood samples ? Indeed, we do not
know the actual infusion rate but we do know the sampling times.*



Can anyone tell me if I chose the right model or help me resolving this?



Thanks in advance,
