The model for a 2x2 crossover design is:
y = sequence + subject(sequence) + treatments + periods
you must use the subject(sequence) term as the error when testing for
sequence effects. A significant sequence effect ( p < 0.10) would indicate
the potiential presence of a carry-over effect. Since the estimate of the
treatment effect contains a sequence component this is an important test.
Period effects can be examined directly (but its a nusiance parameter, so i
don't know why you are interested). Treatments can also be examined
directly (assuming you don't have a sequence effect). GLM or MIXED will
provide you with the answer you require. i use GLM unless i want to compute
confidence intervals in which case the output tables from MIXED are useful.
