Half of Heart Patients Don't Stick to Their Meds

So when they run into a complication, the rest of us should be off the hook when it comes to paying, right?
Just half of people who are given a prescription to prevent heart disease continue to get their medications refilled over time, according to a new review of several studies. The studies looked at seven medications, including aspirin, blood pressure drugs, and statins, typically intended for life-long use. Data from 20 studies suggested the rate at which people continue taking the drugs ranges from 30% to 80%. Among people who have already had a heart attack, one out of every three fails to continue getting their prescription refilled.
Hey, not our fault.
