Question About Prescription

My prescription reads "TAKE 1 CAP BY MOUTH EVERY OTHER DAY ALTERNATE WITH 2 CAPS EVERY OTHER DAY"

Now I'm assuming this means I should take one capsule of Monday, 2 capsules on Wednesday, 1 capsule on Friday, 2 capsules on Sunday, and so on. Is this correct? Thank you for the help.

I think it intends for you to take 1 capsule the first day, 2 the second day, 1 the third day, 2 the fourth day, etc. This approach is often taken when a doctor wants you to have a daily dosage that is not available - so the doctor instead prescribes a dose like you have that averages to what the doctor wants. For instance you can get a 60mg average dose by alternating 40mg and 80mg doses.

Since you are unclear on the intended dosage you should call your doctor.
