How to adopt adherence to medicine as I often forgets to take pills?
Improving adherence has been a gradual process. I often forget to take medication that leads to inadequate efficiency. I would like to understand that how to adopt adherence to medicine. Please leave your comments.
@sandesh Medication nonadherence—when patients don’t take their medications as prescribed—is unfortunately fairly common, especially among patients with chronic disease. When this is the case, it is important for physicians and other health professionals to understand why patients don’t take their medications. Patients may be frightened of potential side effects. They may have also experienced previous side effects with the same or similar medicine. Additionally, patients report not taking their medication because they may have witnessed side effects experienced by a friend or family member who was taking the same or similar medication. From seeing those side effects experienced by someone else, it may have led them to believe the medication caused those problems. A major barrier to adherence is often the cost of the medicine prescribed to the patient. The high cost may lead to patients not filling their medications in the first place. They may even ration what they do fill in order to extend their supply.
