*take 3 times daily* so should I take it every 8 hours or does it really matter what times i take it?

I know this probably seems like a dumb question but i'm sooo sick and can't think straight.

I'm on 3 different medications that all say "take 3 times daily*

Do I need space the doses out 8 hours or does it matter? Like could I just take them when I wake up, in the afternoon and before bed?

  • In some meds it does matter. If it is important the Dr. will perscribe them every 6 or every 8 hours. If it says three times a day. you don't Have to. You should try to take them about the same time each day though.

  • It should be around the same time everyday. so every 8 hrs. around there.
