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?

Yes pretty much as i said, my reference was my revision notes for my nursing qualification, recognised terms in the UK. Maybe you are in a different country?
