I googled 'tid to qid' and it seems to relate to medicine/drug dosages, so they are probably abbreviations of Latin terms used by doctors.

You might have more luck if you re-post this in our medical English section.

This is all perfectly clear now. I think I might have been able to solve it with high school Latin, if I had been given the context (perscription, for example). Thanks for your research, Feebs.

Hello Friend,

b.i.d - two times a day

t.i.d - three times a day

q.i.d or qd - four times a day

I belive the doctor is increasing your treatment dose for a particular drug.

Best Regards,

Raju

These are not English words. They are actually abbreviations for Latin words and are used by medical professionals when giving directions. Particularly when prescribing medication. Bid stands for bis in die which translates to twice a day. Qid stands for quater in die which means four times a day. Finally, tid stands for ter in die which means three times a day. So if your doctor wrote you a prescription for a pain medication with the directions as 1 tablet tid to qid they would want you to take a pill 3-4 times a day. Hope this was helpful.Emotion: big smile

Not true. QD and QID are 2 different things. QID - 4 times a day. QD ("quaque die" - latin) - once a day
