Administer and take the drug/ medicine. Is there any difference ? Can I use " I administer the drug three times per day " or it's used in a different way ? \

Hi Mohamed, "I TAKE my medication..." When you "administer" you are giving the drug (treatment or therapy) TO another person or patient. Administer would also be used in general instructions so the medication package might say "treatment/dosage to be administered daily" or "administer dosage every 4 - 6 hours". Hope this helps! Ellen
