Medication for all types of infections are routinely prescibed for 3 or 4 times a day and we are generally not told any more than that. The idea is to maintain a steady level of medication to fight the infection and for a presciption of 3 times a day (24 hours) that would be every 8 hours, 4 times a day would be every 6 hours. This is obviously very difficult with children and bed times.
