    Hello All!

    Can anyone help what improves patience compliance and what are the poor compliance factors that a pharmacist face up while dispensing medicines?

    For Poor Compliance I came up with:

    Forgetfullness (a big problem with Dementia)
    Cost of Medicine
    PolyPharmacy (a problem especially in elderly patients)
    Difficult Regimens
    No beneficial effect (drugs taking long to act)
    Restrictions (For Example with Tetracyclines cannot spend much time in the sun or cannot drink milk for at least 2 hours before taking the medicine)

    To Improve compliance I came up with:

    Patient Education
    Choose cheaper Medication
    Where possible choose dosage forms that are more comfortable.

    Are there more? Please help me and if you can give me examples with medicines like I did with some of them but I can't thing of others.

    Thank you
