Over the course of a year, about three-quarters of patients prescribed psychotropic medication will discontinue

Costs associated with unplanned discontinuation may be substantial if left uncorrected. Partial non-adherence (much more common than full discontinuation) can also be detrimental, although some patients rationally adjust their medication regimen without ill-effect.

  • I will follow the docs advice with all my meds
  • I might do partial non-adherence without telling the doc
  • I might quit my meds fully cold turkey without telling anyone

I’ve been taking my meds every single day since my diagnosis for over six years now. It’s so worth it

I trust my psychiatrist and he trusts me. I am totally compliant with my medication. It has taken a while to get my meds to the right balance. I don’t have many side-effects and I so, I take the meds as prescribed for me.

Most people agree with you with rates that the meds are discontinued. Love the Clozapine. Probably will be on it for many more years. I feel very comfortable. Some meds make my conscience go into overdrive and make me very sensitive. Just gota find what works for you.

Every single year I had a 75% of stopping my meds? I’ve been compliant with meds for like fifteen years.

Okay well I did miss some doses on purpose when I was delusional. It was always the AP. That was only for a couple years.

I read the family forum and it’s got a lot of sad stuff on it, in large part from people stopping their meds.
