 Oct 18, 2011 Rating Solve by: Anonymous How do you work this problem: The directions on a prescription read 1 tbsp qid, ac and hs. The quantity to be dispensed for a 30 days supply. Answer: 1 tbsp = 1 tablespoon = 15 ML. AC is after meals and HS is at bedtime. So after meals (3 times a day) plus at bedtime (1 time daily) = 4 times daily. 15ML X 4 (times daily) = 60 ML per day. Multiply 60 ML by 30 days = 1,800 ML for a thirty day supply.
