Adherence of Patients to the Antihypertensive Treatment in Georgian Population

Hypertension is a common, chronic disorder which is associated with a significant risk for cardiovascular diseases. Current guidelines emphasise that lowering elevated blood pressure (BP) reduced morbidity from stroke, myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure and renal failure. This inadequate control not only has significant consequences in terms of patient morbidity and mortality, but also in terms of health care costs.
Poor compliance with antihypertensive therapy is thought to be a major factor in the failure to control hypertension. Between 30% and 46% of patients may be non compliant with their antihypertensive drug regimens.
There has been much debate concerning the causes of noncompliance with antihypertensive therapy. Major factors are thought to be asymptomatic nature of hypertension, unacceptable side effects of therapy, suboptimal antihypertensive efficacy, and lack of effective communication between clinician and patient.
