Adherence to Treatment in Hipertensive Patients with Overweight or Obesity. This cross-sectional study evaluates the association between stress-related situations and social support with treatment adherence, in a sample of 173 hypertensive patients with overweight or obesity. Participants answered questions related to treatment adherence (consumption of prescription drugs, according to the doses and times specified). They were considered three stress-related situations (decision making, tolerance to ambiguity and tolerance to frustration) and two types of social support (emotional and confidence) as predictors of adherence. Multiple linear regression analysis showed the influence of two stress-related situations (decision making and tolerance for ambiguity) in overweight patients, and social support in patients with obesity. The association of stress-related situations and social support with the practice of three adherence behaviors was different depending on the patients was different depending on whether the patient is overweight or obese. We discuss the implications of findings for the purposes of designing, implementing and evaluating programs to improve treatment adherence in hypertensive patients.
