This study is designed to find out if an intervention designed to help patients remember to take their medication is effective. The intervention consists of a wristwatch that has an alarm to remind patients when to take their medication, a pillbox and three monthly phone calls by a physician. All these experimental measures are meant to improve the ability of patients to take their medicines.
