Mental health, binge drinking, and antihypertension medication adherence

, : Mental health, binge drinking, and antihypertension medication adherence. American Journal of Health Behavior 33(2): 158-171

To evaluate the relationship between self-reported mental health and binge drinking, as well as health status, sociodemographic, social support, economic resource, and health care access indicators to antihypertension medication adherence. Analysis of 2003 California Health Interview Survey data. Having poor mental health days predicted medication nonadherence, whereas binge drinking did not. Nonadherence predictors included younger age, Latino, non-US citizen, uninsured, less education, and no regular medical care. Adherence predictors were older age, African American, having prescription insurance, a college degree, poor health, comorbid diabetes or heart disease, and overweight or obese. Better mental health may improve medication adherence among hypertensive individuals.
