, there were nonetheless some occasions (n = five) on which service users chose to not follow suggestions regardless of expecting negative consequences (Table 2). Thirty-four % (n = 12) of service users reported that they would like to alter the way they followed their treatment suggestions, with 20 (n = 7) wanting to comply with them extra closely and 14 (n = five) significantly less closely. Sixty-six percent (n = 23) didn't would like to alter the way they followed suggestions. Of these who didn't choose to transform the way they followed their suggestions, only 57 (n = 13) reported that they followed recommendations precisely. This means that nearly a third of service customers (29 , n = ten) did not take medication as advisable and have been happy with their level of adherence (Table three). Service customers had been asked to rate their satisfaction with their existing medication on a scale of 1 (not at all satisfied) to 5 (pretty satisfied) (Figure 1).
