Many heart attack patients don't refill their meds
Older people who've suffered a heart attack often don't stick with the drugs their doctor prescribes, although the medications have been proven to save lives, according to a study. Seniors filled prescriptions for the clot-buster drug clopidogrel less than half the time on average, for instance. And the less diligent they were at getting their meds, the more likely they were to have health problems and die early, researchers said.
