Hi XXXXXX,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Since your doctor advised this to be given twice a day he meant it should be given 12 hours apart.
So if you give it in the morning give it around the same time in the evening/night.

Please continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
