usually after meals 3 times a day. but this shud have been clarified with the doctor and plus it must be written on the prescription page also.

when u go to a chemist with a prescription, they give medicines accoridng to what is prescribed by the dctor

Sheetal Rai

8 hours. u can divide 24 hours by three. that's how the dosage can be timed. and if it's two time then 24 hours by two. that's how my doctor tells me to do it.


Hi Anon. This needs to be checjed with the Dr that presecribed the medicine. As a thumb rule always ask the Dr when to be taken. Usually drs will say when to take. In case dr doesnt pls ask. Best to be on the safe side.

ask ur doc . normally if giving crocin time span is 6 hours . or if very high fever then 4 hrs

Kaushal Sovani

So it should be 8 hrs gap between two dosages. 
For my daughter this is the 8 hr time schedule approx 7 am,  3 pm and 11pm. This is according to my daughter's sleep-awake cycle. You can work it out according to ur lo's schedule.
