Does that mean if I take one and then need one 2-3 hours later, can I take another? That would mean I was taking one every 3 hrs
If I have a medication for pain and it says 1-2 tablets every 6 hours, as needed for pain?

Actually you can do that. You have to keep track tho, because that pill will have different timing then the first pill. You should only have at the most 8 tabs in 24 hrs. However, you'll probably find that if you take 2 at once you will have better pain relief.
No, they want a 6-hour gap between the 1-2. 1 every 3 hours will not give you the same benefit.
