: Hi,
: Could you please tell me, why 'q.d.s' means 4 times a day in a prescription?
: Have you got any type of a typical prescription picture to show to me?

: Thanks!

: PS:I'm looking for some detailed info on climatic types around the world. If you know some websites of this kind, could you recommend them to me? I'd be especially interested in some climatic type graphs.

On a prescription, qds (or qid) means 4 times a day. Origin: L. Quater in die. From: www.books.md/Q/dic/
