Days Supply answer for this question is 12 Days
by: David

First, find the maximum that the person could use in 1 day. 50 pills divided by 4 max per day (how did we get 4? 24 divided by 6 = 4 potential doses per day) and you get 12.

This prescription will last at least 12 days, if taken at the maximum daily dosing.

Thanks for the question, Brooklyn.
