Abstract

Antipsychotic pharmacotherapy is considered a first-line treatment in schizophrenia-related disorders and is associated with favorable prognosis and lower mortality rates. However, low adherence rates present a major clinical challenge. In this paper, we will review contemporary approaches to improve adherence to antipsychotic treatment, considering their mechanism of action, safety, tolerability and acceptability.
