If the prescription states how many times per day to take it, divide that number by 24 (hours in a day) to determine the hourly interval between doses. For example: If the prescription says to take 1 pill 4 times a day, you will take 1 pill (24/4)= every 6 hours. In general you do not have to take medication around the clock unless your physician has intructed you to do so.
