In a tertiary care hospital on out patient basis we observed that the prescribed medication with inhaled bronchodilators and steroids was not being taken by the patients. To study the patient-related factors we conducted a questionnaire study to know the possible reasons for non-compliance with inhaled drugs. It was 56.25%. 82.6% were compliant with oral medication. Cost of medication was the single most important factor for non compliance.
