Prescription medication is typically prescribed with a standardised set of instructions, to be followed regularly, with the aim being to manage symptoms while remaining within safe dosage limits. The caveat of such standardisation is that it is not tailored to the needs of the patient, in terms of their activities. In this paper, we take the first steps towards modelling medication pharmacokinetics as a PDDL+ hybrid planning problem. As pharmacokinetics are inherently non-linear, we present a planner-independent linearise--validate cycle, where tasks can be solved by iterative refinement of a linear approximation of the domain, by validation against the full non-linear semantics.
