This means that practically a third of service users (29 , n = ten) did not take MedChemExpress medication as advised and have been content with their degree of adherence (Table 3). Thirty-four % (n = 12) of service customers reported that they would prefer to modify the way they followed their treatment suggestions, with 20 (n = 7) wanting to follow them much more closely and 14 (n = five) much less closely. Sixty-six % (n = 23) didn't desire to transform the way they followed recommendations. Of these who didn't desire to modify the way they followed their recommendations, only 57 (n = 13) reported that they followed recommendations precisely. This implies that almost a third of service customers (29 , n = 10) didn't take medication as recommended and have been content with their degree of adherence (Table three). Service customers had been asked to rate their satisfaction with their current medication on a scale of 1 (not at all satisfied) to 5 (quite happy) (Figure 1). They have been also asked to rate their satisfaction with their current supportGibson et al.
