Plasma concentrations, information and therapy adherence during long‐ term treatment with antidepressants.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The influence of information on drug plasma monitoring during long‐term antidepressant therapy in fourteen ambulant, depressed patients was evaluated as variation in the L/D ratio time course. A larger variability in L/D ratio, with higher coefficient of variation and a poorer clinical outcome, was found in non‐informed patients. The data support the hypothesis that verbal information on long‐term drug monitoring of antidepressants could improve patients' adherence to therapy. 1985 The British Pharmacological Society
