Russell Cohen, MD, Discusses Medication Adherence in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Russell Cohen, MD, says medication adherence is an important issue for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), because patients must stay on medications long term. Dr Cohen comments, "IBD is a chronic relapsing condition, you don't just stop your medicines." There have been many breakthroughs in medication adherence for managing IBD. For instance, Dr Cohen says once-a-day dosing ensures patients don't fall behind in taking their prescribed medications.
