Descriptive Information
Brief TitleEffectiveness Of A Program That Includes Counseling And Patient Support On Adherence To Treatment With Lipitor
Official TitleImpact Of An Integrated Intervention Program On Adherence To Atorvastatin
Brief SummaryDespite extensive reports of the benefits of statins in reducing serious cardiovascular events such as stroke and heart disease in patients with elevated LDL-cholesterol, patients do not take their medicines regularly as prescribed. Reasons include forgetfulness, lack of understanding of the seriousness of the disease, and fear of side effects. An intervention strategy comprising 3-5 minutes of counseling, emotional support and cost-sharing may be motivational and improve adherence to treatment.
