A new study was done showing that:
People who did not regularly take their medications for high blood pressure and cholesterol had a seven times higher risk of a fatal stroke, compared with those who took the drugs as prescribed, researchers reported in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
So, wait, if you don’t take the medication then bad things can happen? Isn’t that why we give medications? So, this study showed treatments work. Well, I guess the only thing to do know is penalize the doctors for patients who don’t take their drugs. That is the only fair thing to do.Tweet
