Why Mom may not be taking her pills, Patty Hedrick, @PKHedrick, North Star Elder Care #Nurseup #Eldercare

Why Mom may not be taking her pills, Patty Hedrick, @PKHedrick North Star Elder Care:"Did your parent teach you to "do what the doctor says"? If he or she is not following doctor's orders for medications now, you're probably feeling confused. And concerned.

It's common for patients not to take pills as directed. Some reasons include:

"It's too costly." One quarter of new prescriptions are never filled because of cost. Make sure the drug is on the insurance plan formulary. Or ask about generics. Find a discount pharmacy, or consider mail order."
