Lithuanian translation:vartoti nereguliariai (siekiant užtikrinti žemos nitratų koncentracijos periodus)
Explanation:
atsižvelgdama į terminą 'asymmetrical distribution' manau, kad čia taip pat norima pasakyti, kad tabletės vartotinos 'netolygiai', t. y., nereguliariai. Bet gal iš konteksto matyti geriau, gal nurodytas vartojimo būdas, pagal kurį būtų galima pritaikyti tinkamesnį žodį

Notes to answerer
Asker: Atsiprašau, nepridėjau daugiau konteksto. Toliau rašoma, kad tabletes reikia gerti kas 6 valandas (tai yra reguliariai?). Todėl ir nesupratau, kodėl vartojamas žodis "asymmetrical"..

Reference: asymmetric dosing

Reference information:
The majority of patients who take regular nitrates for angina are maintained on isosorbide mononitrate, whic is generally dosed twice daily at 8am and 2pm (so-called ‘asymmetric dosing’) to ensure a nitrate-free period during the later part of the day and overnight.
