Barriers to medication adherence are multifactorial, often complex, and highly individualized. The solutions to improve adherence and achieve optimal outcomes must be multi-modal, adaptable, and personalized to achieve optimal patient outcomes.

Failure to
fill a prescription

Refusal to
refill a prescription

Frequently miss
medication doses

Taking a lower
dose than prescribed

Taking a higher
dose than prescribed

Stopping
medication too soon

Taking an
old medication

Taking someone
else’s medication

Forgetting to take
prescribed medication.
