Interventions to enhance medication adherence increase the proportion of patients compliant with medication (on average, 628 per 1000 people in the adjunctive intervention group vs 526 per 1000 people in the standard behavioral support group adhered based on RCTs including around 1600 people). A small improvement in rates of adherence was noted as measured by the amount of medication consumed (moderate‐certainty evidence). However, this did not seem to lead to higher rates of abstinence from tobacco (low‐certainty evidence). No adverse effects seem to be associated with the studied adjunctive interventions.
