Do you take your medicines on time when prescribed 3-4 times a day?

I can only take my medicines and complete 'em when they are prescribed 1-2 times a day but when the doctor prescribes 3-4 times, I just can't complete 'em and that's the problem with me. I just can't get up early in the morning to eat just to be able to drink the medicine prescribed to me. How about you? How do you complete a prescription of 3-4 times a day medicine intake?

Its easy, you take your medecine at four hourly intervals: 8 am, 12 midday 4 pm and 8 pm. Or you could do 5 hourly, 7, 12, 5 and 10 o clock. ;)

Yes I would follow the directions and get up and eat something to take the medicine especially if it's a medicine like an antibiotic when it is very important not to miss a dose.

When it's prescribed by the doctor, i really try to follow the instructions given. I try to take it at the right time and right dosage, and comlplete the days to be taken. Because when i get to see the doctor, for me that would mean that i cannot afford to be sick anymore and want to get well soon. So i just obey the doctor for that.
