Lognormal survival in NONMEM?

Dear all,

Playing with repeated time to event models, I run into the issue that simpl=
e diagnostics for a single time to event outcome suggest that constant haza=
rd and Weibull models are not very appropriate. The lognormal model seems t=
o provide a very nice fit; compared to a constant hazard, the hazard is sug=
gested to be higher in the beginning and then significantly lower at later =

I have not seen any implementations online: does anyone know if the lognorm=
al survival function can be implemented in NONMEM, and/or can anyone sugges=
t alternative approaches? Some time-varying function to modify the hazard?

Any and all suggestions appreciated!

Kind regards,
