Why is Medication Compliance So Important?

If you are someone who suffers from a chronic condition, then you likely have a number of different medications to take to keep your illness in check. For example, you may need pain relief, vitamins, anti-inflammatories, beta-blockers, or a range of other prescriptions. These should be taken on a daily schedule in order to manage your symptoms. However, statistics show that the majority of Americans with a chronic illness are missing at least one of their prescribed medications.

The World Health Organization states that of people who are prescribed more than 2 different medications, only 67% take them according to instructions. Some of the reasons why people may not be taking all of their medication include forgetfulness, not understanding how the medication is helping, the medication is too expensive, they can't get their refills on time, and many more.
