    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)
    Side-Effects
    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
