You might have more luck if you re-post this in our medical English section.
Anonymoushola, my friends..b.i.d.
bis in die (twice a day)
ter in die (three times a day)
quater in die (four times a day)
Feebs11This 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.Anonymoushola, my friends..b.i.d.
actually, i came across with these words when i was reading an overview of drug therapies for Allergic Rhinitis..
again, thanks friends!!
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.
Anonymous: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.
AnonymousHello Friend,Not true. QD and QID are 2 different things. QID - 4 times a day. QD ("quaque die" - latin) - once a day
