The Patient Management Program is optimized when the patient is willing to follow directions as prescribed by your doctor and is compliant to therapy. This includes taking the right dosage at the right time and for the prescribed length of therapy.
Educating yourself on the medications you are taking and the disease for which you are being treated is a very important part of dealing with the changes you are experiencing. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for any other educational resources specific to your condition.
