Thanks for writing to us.

The routine dosage schedule are-
- Ciprofloxacin morning evening after meals
- Clarithromycin once in morning after meals
- Desloratidine( neoclarityn) once in morning.

Steroids such as Deflazacortil is dosed according to the condition it is indicated and body weight. The frequency is either as a single dose in the morning; and if the doses are high these can be taken in divided doses (as it seems in your case).

Whenever in doubt always consult the doctor who prescribed the drugs as for recovery correct dosing and schedule of drugs is mandatory.

Hope that answers your query. Should there be more, feel free to write back to us.

Take care
