Özet

Objective: Non-compliance to treatment and missing control appointments is common especially in psychiatric outpatient clinics. In studies, non-compliance rates in psychiatric disorders vary widely depending on the patient population. Studies about treatment compliance had been conducted mostly in patients who had a particular psychiatric disorder or used particular psychotropic drugs. Studies evaluating treatment compliance of patients who had different psychiatric diagnoses or treated with different drugs seems to be scarce.
