Often prescription pills are picked up at the pharmacy but not taken. 'Girls who swallow the pill alone if they have sex because they have not listened properly to the GP. A patient who does not use medication on Sunday because you have to rest your body one day a week. A man with excessive blood pressure who does not take pills in the holiday because then he is relaxed. Ask a random doctor or pharmacist and they come with dozens of examples of patients who do not use or not use their medication.' Article written by Ellen de Visser for Volkskrant - Sir Edmund.
