Chihuahua Addict Adores Scooby say: If you take it 2 times a day, you take it every 12 hours.

Jim Moor say: Twice a day means "about" 12 hours apart. I personally would do 8am & 8pm, but it could easily be 10am & 6PM if that's your awake hours.

Q12H means every 12 hours. This is not the same as twice-daily (bid or BD). <<< So just spread out over your waking hours!

A more common problem is:
QID (Take 4 Times Daily) and Q6H (Take Every 6 Hours)

One distinction in medication instructions is when a medication is prescribed at a specific time interval, or instead, is written as a number of doses to be taken daily. An example would be a prescription that is prescribed QID (translated to mean take the medication four times a day,) and q6h, which would mean to take the medication every six hours. What is the difference?

When a medication is prescribed QID (4 times a day) it is most often assumed that the medication will be taken 4 times a day spread out over waking (AWAKE) hours. However, this is something to clarify with your physician or pharmacist if it isn't spelled out.
A prescription prescribed q6h (every 6 hours) is usually designed to be taken every 6 hours, even if you have to set an alarm and wake up to make sure you follow this schedule.
