Take 1 tablet by mouth every 6 hours until finished.
In which sense 'until finished' has been used here? Does it mean we should keep taking 1 tablet until all of the tablets are finished? Thanks
Explanation: Particularly if it's an antibiotic. If you don't finish the course, you may not be cured completely, and may develop a resistance to the antibiotic in question. When the doctor next wants to prescribe this antibiotic to you, it may not be effective.
