Thirty-four % (n = 12) of service users reported that they would prefer to alter the way they followed their remedy recommendations, with 20 (n = 7) wanting to stick to them much more closely and 14 (n = 5) less closely. Sixty-six percent (n = 23) did not choose to alter the way they followed suggestions. Of these who didn’t want to change the way they followed their recommendations, only 57 (n = 13) reported that they followed suggestions specifically. This implies that nearly a third of service users (29 , n = ten) didn’t take medication as suggested and have been happy with their amount of adherence (Table three). Service users had been asked to price their satisfaction with their present medication on a scale of 1 (not at all happy) to 5 (extremely satisfied) (Figure 1). They have been also asked to rate their satisfaction with their current supportGibson et al.
