What is Medication Adherence?

What is Medication Non-Adherence?

Medication adherence, or taking medications correctly, is generally defined as the extent to which patients take medication as prescribed by their doctors. This involves factors such as getting prescriptions filled, remembering to take medication on time, and understanding the directions.

Medication non-adherence is when a person is not able to successfully take their medications as prescribed by their healthcare providers. Non-adherence with medication is a complex and multidimensional health care problem and can be due to several factors.


  • you have trouble keeping track of your refills.

  • you would like to save several trips to and from the pharmacy each month to pick up your medications.

  • you would like your medication packaged at no additional cost in WellPak or blister pack.

  • you would like your medications AND supplements monitored by Wellspring Pharmacy for any negative side effects.

  • you would like Wellspring Pharmacy to help you manage your medications so you realize success, want freedom from the difficult routine of managing prescriptions, and peace of mind to know that what is delivered is correct and always up to date.
