As a physician, I find myself directing people every day to take this or that medication. Sometimes for a long term regimen, others more limited. But what does the patient think? Do you really have to take them all, exactly as prescribed? Is twice a day really needed, or do you have to take all ten day's worth? Here is a little piece from the Reader's Digest Online that addresses some of these issues. I would happily expand the discussion if there is interest.
