Mrs. Hajra A. Patel* and Dr. Jitendra Vaghasiya

ABSTRACT

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic autoimmune inflammatory disease with a prevalence of approximately 1%. Incompletely controlled RA results in severe progressive joint damage, functional disability, morbidity, and increased mortality. This review represents various factors that affects medication adherence in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Despite extensive evidence regarding drug efficacy and the risk of long-term harm from uncontrolled RA, medication adherence rates remain suboptimal, ranging from 30 to 80%. Medication nonadherence is a dynamic, multifaceted issue affected by (i) patient factors, (ii) disease features, and (iii) drug characteristics. This factors are deeply discussed below and this can be taken in note for patient counseling of patients who are undergoing rheumatoid arthritis treatment to increase medication adherence.
