Medication nonadherence—when patients don't take their medications as prescribed—is unfortunately fairly common, especially among patients with chronic disease. Learn eight reasons why patients don't take their medications and ways your team can help identify and improve patients' adherence to their medications.
Please explain the grammatical form and function of "as" in "as prescribed".
Does "as prescribed" modify the noun "medications" and thus function as an adjective?

I'm not a grammar expert, but "as" appears to me to be an adverb and "as prescribed" looks like it modifies "take". Patients don't take (as prescribed; they don't follow the instructions given for) their medications.

Is "as required" a reduced relative clause?
As they are prescribed
Please explain the structure "as" conjunction plus past participle
