This is utilized in treating overdose with aspirin (a weak acid) by alkalinization of the urine, thereby accelerating urinary elimination of salicylate (Chapter 54). The extent to which urinary pH affects renal excretion of weak acids and bases depends quantitatively upon the pKa of the drug. 5 for bases. Urinary pH may also influence the fraction of the total dose which is excreted unchanged. e. 0). Administration of amphetamines with sodium bicarbonate has been used illicitly by athletes to enhance the pharmacological effects of the drug on performance, as well as to make its detection by urinary screening tests more difficult.

Tubular reabsorption is influenced by urine flow rate. 2). 2: Effect of diuresis (urine flow rate) on renal clearance of a drug (D) passively reabsorbed in the distal tubule. increase drug elimination during treatment of overdose (Chapter 54). Reabsorption of drugs that are weak acids (AH) or bases (B) depends upon the pH of the tubular fluid, because this determines the fraction of acid or base in the charged, polar form and the fraction in the uncharged lipid-soluble form. For acidic drugs, the more alkaline the urine, the greater the renal clearance, and vice versa for basic drugs, since: AϪ ϩ Hϩ AH and B ϩ Hϩ BHϩ .
