So "three daily" is every 8 hours, or is it, and for how long?

As a physician, I find myself directing people every day to take this or that medication.  Sometimes for a long term regimen, others more limited.  But what does the patient think?  Do you really have to take them all, exactly as prescribed?  Is twice a day really needed, or do you have to take all ten day's worth?  Here is a little piece from the Reader's Digest Online that addresses some of these issues.  I would happily expand the discussion if there is interest.
