Sažetak
The common factors that interfere with medication adherence are social/economic-related factors, survivor-related, medication-related factors, condition-related factors etc. Problem of adherence can be seen in all the situations when it is necessary that the patient is receiving therapy alone, regardless of the type and severity of the disease and the availability of health care. Low persistence is the main reason for lack of clinical benefit of therapy. It causes medical and psychosocial complications of the disease, reduces the quality of patients' lives, and wasted health resources. There is some vagueness about measurement of adherence to therapy by prescription claims data. Many people obtain drugs regardless of the needs and refiils or pharmacy claims data can not be a true indicator of timely taking medications. The obtained results reveal that more than half of respondents (58.9%) experienced constant according to the prescribed therapy. Nonadherence with therapy has negative consequences on the health of the individual, and an adverse impact on the community. The main problem of long-term therapy is significantly decreased of adherence to medication in a very short time. Nonadherence greatly increases the nation’s health care bill. Every proposal on the table that makes an individual pay more for his medicine will increase nonadherence and add even more to the nation’s health care bill. Higher deductibles and higher co-payments charged by insurance companies against each individual will only make the problem worse. Paradoxically, as cost-driven nonadherence pushes total health care costs higher, these same insurance companies may find themselves less profitable over the long run as they face the high cost of complications caused by medication nonadherence.
