Help Patients Brush Up on Their Meds

To improve adherence in patients whose drug regimen calls for twice-daily dosing, I encourage them to keep the medication near their toothbrush. The habit of brushing their teeth twice a day reminds them to take their medication. This works especially well for young children who take asthma medication.
