What is medication adherence, and why should you follow it for a healthy and happy life?

The World Health Organization defines medication adherence as "the degree to which a person's behavior corresponds with the agreed recommendations from a health care provider.”

It can significantly impact the quality of life and length, health outcomes, and healthcare expenses. Little is known regarding the relationship between medication adherence and quality of life in patients.


Quality of life is paramount and continues to sustain its subjective nature. In simpler terms, it is our well-being and everyday life. Various factors such as employment, wealth, safety, education, liberty, health, and so on are considered to assess the quality of life. The burden of preventable disease, injuries, and impairments can be reduced by improving one's quality of life.

Medication adherence and Quality of Life are linked among patients who attend primary care clinics, particularly those with diabetes and hypertension. Medication adherence should be assessed and emphasized during routine clinical consultations in primary care to achieve the desired clinical outcomes and overall well-being of patients.

Let's start by addressing the elephant in the room to improve the quality of life. Medication adherence can significantly impact patient outcomes more than the specific treatment itself. Chronic medication adherence is believed to be around 50%.

> Take your prescription every day at the same time.


>Make taking your meds a part of your daily routine, such as brushing your teeth or getting ready for bed. Check with your doctor to see if your medication should be taken on an empty or full stomach.


>Keep a "medicine calendar" with your pill bottles and make a note of when you take a dose.


> Make use of a pill container. Some feature sections for numerous dosages, such as breakfast, lunch, evening, and night.


> If you use a pill container, refill it simultaneously each week. Every Sunday morning, for example, after breakfast.


> Buy timed caps for your pill bottles and program them to sound when your next dose is due. Some pill boxes also include timers.


>When traveling, bring enough medication for your trip, plus a few days extra in case your return is delayed.
