Housecall for Health: Pill Color May Make You Skip Meds
A new study shows that the color of pills might actually stop people from taking them to treat their ailments.
FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
The color of your pill may determine whether or not you even take it. A study at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston found patients whose pill medication changed color were more likely to not refill it. The researchers say the reason could be that patients become confused when their pill has a new color.
Health experts say failure to take prescribed medicine is a serious problem, that half the time a treatment doesn’t work, it’s because patients haven’t taken their pills.
