 English term or phrase: odd days and even days Take 2 tablets by mouth on odd days and 1 tablet on even days. What is meant by odd days and even days in this context? I am also curious to know is there any other way of taking the tablets other than mouth? Thanks in advance.

agree  Can Altinbay: Correct on odd/even days. See http://www.proz.com/kudoz/986983 for a discussion on taking tablets by mouth vs. other methods.

agree  pidzej: (may be "by mouth" to indicate they should be swallowed whole rather than e.g. dissolved in a glass of water?)

agree  Armorel Young: yes, although I find it an odd formulation because if a month has 31 days you will take a consecutive double dose on the 31st and 1st, which doesn't sound right.
