Depression is a psychiatric illness that manifests itself through a low mood and somatic symptoms such weakness, sleep disorders, among others. It occurs mainly at early ages, however it has been described at any age; this disease generates high impact in the familiar, social and work environment of the person. Antidepressant therapy includes drug therapy and psychotherapy, both being essential for the remission of this pathology. Therefore, therapeutic adherence, defined as the compliance with doses and times indicated of the prescribed medication and the acceptance of changes in lifestyle, is considered a clinical challenge that despite of being low studied, significantly improves control of depressive symptoms and avoids consequences such as disability.
