Type 2 diabetes is a common chronic condition associated with co-morbid hypertension and hyperlipidaemia. Multiple medicines are usually prescribed to manage these conditions. However, regimens containing multiple medicines are difficult to manage and their necessity may not be understood. As a result adherence can become a problem. This article discusses the impact of multiple medicines on adherence and the way adherence issues can be tackled during general practice consultations.
