Materials and Methods: This was an observational study. A total of 132 patients have been enrolled; 111 patients have completed the study. Patients in the intervention group received patient counseling, patient information form (PIF). Medication adherence and QoL were assessed using the Morisky and Minichal-Brazil scales. The score was evaluated and statistically analyzed. A comparative study was conducted between pre- and post-consultation scores. There was a statistically significant difference (P < 0.001) between pre- and post-consultation. Conclusion: The research found a significant rise in drug adherence respondents following completion of pre- and post-consultation. However, the interventional activity record reduced the still important QoL at the end of the intervention team.
