It depends on the med call your pharmacy and ask them this question and they should be able to answer your question or call your Doc he too may have made a mistake and wrote the script wrong Good Luck

One a day is: oid or sid. Two a day is: bid. As required is: prn or ad. lib. Every hour is: qh. Daily is: od. Does that help?
