Example text

False Non-Responders When unrecognised, poor medication adherence aggravates the course of schizophrenia and promotes misdiagnoses and erroneous classification as non-responders among patients who do not respond because they fail to take medicines as prescribed. ‘‘The physician bases critical decisions in management and diagnosis on the patient’s response to a therapeutic regimen. If he observes no response to a usually effective regimen, he may decide to change the treatment or he may even question his diagnosis’’ [69].

The literature on the cost of schizophrenia in general and poor adherence to antipsychotics in particular is frequently charged by another limitation: much of the evidence is derived from models that are highly conditioned by the set of postulates, assumptions and definitions used by different studies. For example, a 1995 study [122] found that, at the 1-year point, the relative contribution of noncompliance to rehospitalisation of ‘‘neuroleptic responsive, multi-episode … schizophrenia inpatients … discharged back to outpatient treatment’’ was approximately 32 %.

Scarce psychopathologic expertise increases the probability of unsuccessful treatment and this, in turn, leads to unjustified use of polypharmacy and high medication doses, with the risk of an excess of adverse events and a drop in expectations towards psychopharmacotherapies. These factors enter a number of pathways leading to poor medication-taking behaviour. Medical Expertise People with schizophrenia have an excess of medical comorbidities and vulnerabilities linked, in particular, to unhealthy lifestyles, shared diathesis, psychopathologic traits facilitating denial or poor interest in physical health and care inequalities.
