As we try to help our patients and to relieve their distress, we frequently prescribe medications. We duly write prescriptions. Our patients bring their prescriptions to the pharmacy (or we e-prescribe, and they just pick up their meds, or better yet, the meds come in the mail). Then, they bring their meds home, and they take them … or they don’t. Or they do something in between taking and not taking, perhaps taking sometimes and not taking other times. Or taking most of the time and not taking a little of the time. Or taking a little of the time and not taking most of the time.
