    How should the sentence be phrased?

    It is meaningless if you have seen the doctor yet without regularly taking the medicine prescribed by him.

    I believe the above sentence is not well-phrased, but I cannot think of how to change it. Could someone help me?

    Thanks.

    It's pointless going to see the doctor if you don't take the medicine he prescribes.
