Nonadherence or lack of patient compliance to much needed med-icines is on the rise.One of the very common reasons is forgetting to take the medicine or stop taking their medicine earlier than instructed.

A lot of the causes of medication non compliance are psychological. Some of the potential causes of non compliance in patients are:
Type, seriousness and the nature of the illness: Lesser the seriousness of the illness better is the compliance. If the disease has longer duration or constant occurrence, adherence to compliance falls even more.
Therapeutic regime complexity: If the disease has a complex and long duration dosage profile, patient compliance declines even more heavily.
