Because I say so #Takeyourmedicine

Adherence is a challenge for all patients suffering from chronic disease such as hypertension and high cholesterol!

Let’s talk about this important piece of a patient’s treatment. 


Light bulbDid you know?

40%
More than 40% of patients with hypertension and high cholesterol are nonadherent to their treatment.

The nonadherence to hypertension or high hholesterol treatment results in an increased risk of having a cardiovascular event such as heart attack or stroke, and it could be fatal.

For these reason, it is so important to take your medicine every day and to follow your doctor’s recommendation to achieve disease control and be protected.

Remember, hypertension and high cholesterol are silent diseases.

To remind you to take your medicine every day we have developped this worldwide campaign.
