According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, medication adherence alone can prevent around 125, 000 annual deaths in America. Non-compliance with medications accounts for nearly 30%-50% of chronic disease treatment failures and 10% of hospital read missions.
hether intentional or not, medication non-adherence can include any or a combination of the following:
- Discontinuing your prescription even before the completion of the therapy
- Taking more or taking less of your medication than the amount directed by your physician
- Taking a dose at the wrong time
- Taking the wrong prescription
