Abstract

Fifty four articles related to tuberculosis were found in a search through a database. Thirty three articles were selected and reviewed on the basis of clinical relevance and future implications. Medication compliance refers to whether patients take their medications as prescribed as well as whether they continue to take a prescribed medication. Medication non adherence is a growing concern to clinicians, healthcare systems, and other stakeholders because of mounting evidence that it is prevalent and associated with adverse outcomes and higher costs of care. The main objectives of the clinical pharmacist is to describe the pattern and monitoring the medication compliance of anti-tubercular used in patients and assess the knowledge among patients regarding their medications.
