Yeah when a doctor writes this:

1T Q4-6H

PRN Pain

 

OR

1T TID Q6H PRN PAIN

One tablet three times a day every 6 hours as needed for pain.

 

BLAH BLAH BLAH                                                HAHAHAHAHAHH!!!!!

 

Means one tablet every 4-6 hours as needed for pain.

 

ROSETTA STONE HHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHHH OUTSTANDING

left eye

The "oculo sinistro" translates to left eye.  As in the Evil Eye?  That's kinda funny isn't it!

Goat, first and foremost, I love the list man.

noc=at nightthis is a meaning

noc=at night

this is a meaning that is used in the medical field in my state, I have never seen the "noxt" used for "at night"..not to say that it is not used though...just never seen it in my state.

Need a definition please

Goat, I just saw an edit you made in a posters reply and in it you told them "We do not use SWIM on here". What does 'SWIM' stand for? I might be the only one here with no clue, lol, but it's the first time I have seen that one. Thanks to anyone who answers.
