Better than Daily has the following

Non-daily (Bolus) is virtually always better: -Reasons include:

    • Fewer opportunities to forget
    • Fewer times to have to take a pill - for those who dislike it
  2. High concentration resulting from infrequent dosing gets past some gene and gut limitations
    • Note: Many studies have found non-daily to be better than daily
