Take time for yourself and find ways to relieve stress.
Key Recommendation: Quit smoking and use Rx as directed.
Use Rx as directed
No matter what your health condition, taking your medicine as directed can help you lead a longer, healthier life.
Nearly 3 out of 4 Americans don’t take their medications as directed, resulting in serious health consequences. There are many factors that contribute to non-adherence, but the effect is always the same – patients are putting their health and their future at risk.
If you have a long-term health problem, like diabetes, asthma or high blood pressure, your future depends on taking your medicine. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist to make sure you understand your health problem and how your medicine can help.
