There are several reasons why someone might not take their medications as directed. Some of these reasons include:
* You simply forget,
* Bad or uncomfortable side effects,
* Not understanding the instructions,
* Being away from home,
* Running out of medications,
* Having too many pills to take,
* Feeling too busy,
* Not wanting others to notice you taking the medication,
* Changes in your routine,
* Feeling very depressed or overwhelmed, or
* Current alcohol or substance use.
If you have had a hard time taking your medications, talk with your healthcare provider. He or she can give you ideas for overcoming any problems you have with following your treatment program.
