Need help with prescription terminology!

Posted by DiscoPuppy on June 20, 2002, at 21:21:25

Can someone refresh me on what the following means again please? I know it refers to the frequency in which one takes medication in a given day:

qid
tid
bid

.... let me know if I missed any but I see those three quite often.

Thanks!

BID = bis in die (twice in a day)
TID = ter in die (thrice in a day)
QID = quater in die (4 in a day)
QD = quaque die (each day)

PRN = pro re nata (according to circumstances)

So there's my Latin homework for the day! :)

This fellow has several tables with over 100 abbreviations, their expansions, and their English translations:
