The relationships of social support, insight, and psychopathology with medication adherence were explored by regression analysis.
Better social support and insight in outpatients with schizophrenia partly contributed to their higher rate of adherence. The non-adherence rate in this study aligns with that from other studies, such as those by Lacro et al (16) (49.5%) and Yang et al (17) (41.2%).
The patients with following findings were further interrogated for poor adherence: patients with poor BP control, target organ damage, poor physical condition, obesity or conflicting answers.
In the study, the following definitions were used: medicine related adherence: to receive all the prescribed medications regularly in the last week; diet-related adherence: to consume a low-fat and low-sodium diet; exercise-related adherence: to exercise 30-60 minutes/days at least three times a week; measurement-related adherence: to measure the BP and record it at least once a day; smoking-related adherence: not to smoke (either never smoked or stopped smoking).
