    At

    The Parkinsons medicinies are time-specific.
    Which one from the following is grammatically correct in terms of preposition " At" ?
    Take one tablet at 7 am, 10 am, 4pm and 10 pm.
    Take one tablet at 7 am, at 10 am, at 4pm and at 10 pm.
    Do we use "at" preposition with all the timings or only with the first timing?

    Re: At

    First 'at' is enough and others are redundant but don't know the reason.

    Re: At

    Either way is possible. It's more natural to omit the redundant ats.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
