    hey anyone on here know what the sig "UTD" stands for? I know it means 'take as directed" or "take as needed" .... but what do the actual U-T-D stand for?

    probably "use/take as directed"

    If not that, I'm stumped.

    I looked in Reifman's Pharm Tech Review. They had the abbreviation "ut dict" or "ud". Latin is "ut dictum" meaning "as directed". Hope that's right!

    Those Latin people had words for everything. Even things that didn't exist in the Latin Era like bacteria.
