    Exclamation Prescription Question...

    I drive(race) for Subaru/Monster Energy Company...I was involved in a bad accident during a trial run. I suffered back and neck injuries, while recuperating, my doctor wrote me out a prescription and I wanted to know what the code stands for...(Symbols Missing)

    Medication Name
    tab po TID prn

    What does the TAB, PO and PRN stand for?

    He usually writes...
    Medication Name
    Sig TID

    Thanks for everyone's time...Much appreciated !!!

    TAB ..... tablet


    PO ....... by mouth


    PRN ..... as needed


    TID ....... three times per day



    So he's telling you to take a tablet by mouth three times per day (as needed only). The PRN means you can take less if tolerable, you don't HAVE to take it three times. Hope that helps. God bless.
