Stay Well
Take Your Medicine... Carefully

US MED Gives BackTo get well or stay well, patients should have prescriptions filled and take them according to the directions. But the Community Pharmacists Association says often that doesn't happen.

*49 percent forget to take it

* 39 percent forgot if they took it and take it again

* 31 percent did not fill a prescription

* 29 percent stopped taking the medication before the supply ran out

* 18 percent took someone else's prescription

* 11 percent received a prescription but substitued an over-the-counter drug

* 8 percent didn't understand how to take the medication

* 6 percent took more than the recommended dosage

If everyone took their medicine as prescribed, more people would get well and their conditions wouldn't turn into something worse..
