Hi Nastia,

» I still struggle to understand what is the difference between lmer and lme in this case...

The syntax of the formula for random effects is different.

mod <- lmer(logPK  ~ sequence + period + treatment +
                     (1|subject),
                     data = data)
mod <- lme(log(PK) ~ sequence + period + treatment,
                     random = ~1|subject,
                     data = data, na.action = na.omit)

Important: If you have incomplete data, in lme() you have to use na.action = na.omit because the default na.action = na.fail would stop and throw an error.

The method to extract the PE and calculate the CI is also different. Hint: Lines 53–56 and 80–84 of the source-code of method.B.R.
