    Article - En anglais

    A cross-sectional community survey was undertaken to investigate the pattern of psychotropic drug consumption in 453 community residents of South Verona.

    Overall, 15.0 ; of the subjects were taking psychotropics (benzodiazepines 13.5 ;, antidepressants 2.2 ;, neuroleptics 1.1 ;). Prevalence was higher in females (20.0 ;), in those over 45 years (25 ;), in high General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) scorers (26.2 ;), and in subjects with physical ill-health (27.0%), with social problems (20.0 ;), with distressing events (22.0 ;) and with alcohol abuse (32.3 ;). Logistic regression analysis showed that age, sex, GHQ score, physical ill-health and life events were all significantly and independently associated with psychotropic drug consumption.
