How Many Hours Inbetween Pills Is 3 Times A Day As Needed

Marie Says:

I am taking Skelaxin. The bottle says take one pill 3 times a day as needed. Is that 6 hours or 8 hours in between each dose? I don't usually take the first one of the day til about 7 or 8 in the morning at the earliest if I need it.

Hello, Marie! How are you?

That would be every 8 hours, 6 hours would be 4 times a day.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thanks so much for your help. If they are 800mg tablets, but I have been cutting them in half and taking only 400mg at a time, approved by nurse, would I still only take them every 8 hours?
