“DON’T BE SHOCKED, BUT I HOPE THAT IN 10/15 YEARS WE WON’T NEED THE POLYPILL ANYMORE!   I THINK I’M VERY OPTIMISTIC – BUT PEOPLE WILL CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOUR-, THEY WILL NOT NEED THE POLYPILL AND THAT IS WHEN HEART ATTACKS WILL BEGIN TO GO DOWN BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL HAVE A BETTER BEHAVIOUR”

Dr. Valentín Fuster

Polypill is a very simple answer to a very huge problem. The problem of adherence, so patients who do not take the medications as they have been prescribed is really behind some of the raise in cardiovascular levels we have seen in the past years. The idea is very simple: it’s combining 3 drugs that have been proven very effective to treat heart attacks and you combine them into one pill so that you ease the complexity and the dose regimen that those patients have to follow.
