Taking your medication is the single most effective way to manage your health condition. Are you taking yours correctly?
A whopping 50% of people aren’t. Research has found that half of people don’t take their medication as prescribed by their doctor, which puts their health at risk. When you don’t follow a correct medication regime, the medication becomes less effective.
Recent reports show that statins, which people take to avoid stroke and cardiac problems, are ineffective in half of all cases. The medication didn’t work simply because it wasn’t taken properly. When you don’t take your medication as prescribed, you’re more likely to need medical attention. You may even need to be admitted into hospital. This is a common result of poor medication management.
And yet, so many people forget how vital it is to take medication as prescribed. Older people and those who need multiple items are more likely to miss doses, which means that more vulnerable people are more at risk. The dangerous attitude we have to medication means that we suffer unnecessarily, and so do those who care about us.
Why don’t we take our medication properly?
For anyone who has a long-term health condition, you’d expect medication to be at the top of their list. The reality is that sometimes it’s just too hard. Managing lots of different medications can be challenging. It’s time consuming to sort everything into specific doses, order and collect the prescription and then actually get into the habit of taking it at the same time every day.
In this modern society, it begs the question: why? There’s a tool for everything nowadays. Why are we still struggling with these medication obstacles that can make us fall off track?
Put simply, the way we manage our medication is outdated, and people are starting to realise this. Thousands of people have changed the way they get their prescription to make sure they stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
