English term or phrase: some more than once
The 50-year-old Gest claims he's in constant pain from beatings during the 15-month marriage. The show business producer claims to be taking 11 different medications a day, some more than once, for headaches, nausea, hypertension, scalp tenderness, insomnia — and phonophobia.

some medications are taken more than once a day
Explanation:
sorry, I can't help you in Chinese :-)

What this means is that Mr. Gest is taking many different kinds of medications every day. He is taking some of those pills (medications) more than once a day. He is taking 11 different kinds of pills a day but some of the pills he is taking twice or three times a day, which means he is actually taking more than 11 pills in a day.

Poor guy! See what Lisa did to him? :-)
