Prescriptions have to be taken consistently to be effective; however, for many individuals missing one or more doses is common. Non-compliance has become an issue in healthcare due to missed doses or individuals choosing not to take their medications. Missed doses sometimes result in the need for additional medicines or treatments. Failure to take a medicine at the designated time can be harmful to any individual who relies on the prescription.
