The author reflects on two studies on the problem of medication nonadherence. He claims that the first study by S. M. Dunlay and colleagues investigates the proportion of patients prescribed drugs for heart failure. He asserts that the second study by M. T. Brown and J. K. Bussel examines the origins of and solutions to poor medication adherence. He states that a key finding of Dunlay's study is that medication adherence can be prevented by economic concerns.
