In 55% of all patients an inappropriate usage of the medicines was detected, and 62% of them interrupt or discontinues their drug consumption due to economic problems; while another 29% do so because of poor understanding of the medical indications; data that contrasts with the official data published by the National Survey about usage and expenditure of medicines in health services. Results obtained from the present study remarks that a public program of medicines to guarantee access and adherence of treatment in social and economical vulnerable patients not only can improve health outcomes but will reduce hospitalizations and another consequences of chronic disease complications.
