    Hannah's been put on an antibiotic and the directions say to give it three times a day.

    Stan and I are having a disagreement over what this means. (there is no time stated on the directions as to how far apart it should be given).

    I think it should be given three times during the day, morning, noon and night.

    He thinks it should be given every 8 hours which would mean waking her up in the middle of the night to give it to her :dohh:

    what do you do?

    Morning, noon and night! Adults don't get up in the middle of the night to take most medications! Medications where the exact timing is important will say so. Hope Hannah is feeling better soon.

    I agree, I've had friends who have had strict guidelines when taking the medications, and if it meant getting up in the middle of the night then so be it. They would have definitely said that you should be waking her up if that was the case.

    I would go with once in the morning, noon and then before bed. Besides, the label says "DAILY". Not "Night and Day".

    I agree with you, if it were me for the boys I'd do first thing when they woke up, after lunch and then before bed

    mor, noon and night makes the most sence!

    men have no idea how hard it is to get a ill baby to sleep in the first place let alone waking them up in the middle of the night for medicine

    Morning noon and night if its for something that not serious - but if it is a serious infection then it should be eight hourly. I did have to take my medication 8 hourly just after I had Tegan (first IV antibiotics and then oral for a month), so it does happen I'm afraid. I'd ask your doc, that would be the best bet.
