Resumen: this study was aimed at evaluating whether once-daily regimens (od-r) show benefits in adherence when compared to twice-daily (td-r). Methods: Prospective, multicenter, 6-month follow-up study with two visits. The main objective was to compare adherence assessed by the electronic prescription refill rate (EPRR) and by the 10-item Test of Adherence to Inhalers (TAI) in patients with od-r and td-r. Suboptimal adherence was defined as TAI < 50 or EPRR ≤ 80%. The effect of suboptimal adherence on meaningful clinical outcomes and the concordance between EPRR and TAI were also examined.
