Background Medication regimen complexity includes various aspects of a regimen, including the dosage form, number of medications and need for additional information for use. Complicated medication regimens cause non-adherence to prescribed medications, making it essential to evaluate medication regimen complexity in older adults to improve adherence to prescribed medications and clinical outcomes. The medication regimen complexity index is currently the most widely used scale for quantifying regimen complexity; however, it has yet to be adopted in Japan.
