Medication compliance (or adherence) simply means sticking to your prescription. Adhering to medication is taking the medication as directed by a health care professional – whether taken in pill form, inhaled, injected, or applied topically. Not taking medication as prescribed is called non-adherence. Many people never fill their prescriptions, or they may never pick up their filled prescriptions from the pharmacy. Other people bring their medication home, but don’t follow their health care professional’s instructions – they skip doses or stop taking the medicine.

Specifically, non-adherence includes:
• Not filling a new prescription or refilling an existing prescription when you are supposed to
• Stopping a medicine before the instructions say you should
• Taking more or less of the prescribed medicine
• Taking the medicine at the wrong time
