Is it ok to miss a dose of your treatment?

Discussion Starter

Everyone forgets to take their pills once in a while, but if someone tells you that they aren't taking their treatment properly you might be able to help.

You could first ask about why they aren't taking it properly - are they experiencing side effects, or are they just forgetting? Suggest things like writing when they need to take their treatment on a calendar or in their phone, or offer to call them to remind them.
