Building healthy lifestyle habits is not always easy, but what is even more difficult is adhering to a daily treatment prescribed by your doctor. In fact it is a bigger problem than many people realize. We know that up to half of people do not take their treatment as recommended by their doctor1 and a third stop their treatments earlier than recommended.2 If you do not take your treatment, you are unlikely to get the full benefit of what the treatment has to offer to successfully manage your health.

It seems straightforward, but taking daily medication can sometimes be challenging. We all know how hard it can be to break a bad habit or to form a new one.
