  1. Factors predicting the use of multiple psychotropic medications.

    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    Recent studies have questioned the appropriateness of some types of psychotropic medication prescribing, especially by general practitioners.

    The purpose of this study is to investigate factors that predict pre, scribing of multiple psychotropic medications, a class that may represent more complicated cases.

    Method 

    This study analyzed data from the 1989 National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS).

    Multiple logistic regression methods were used to determine variables that predicted the provision or ordering of multiple psychotropic medications during a single office visit.

    Resells : Patients who visited psychiatrists were six times more likely to receive psychotropics in combination than patients visiting general practitioners.

    Patients diagnosed as manic were four times more likely to receive multiple psychotropics, and those diagnosed as schizophrenic were three times more likely.

    Patients visiting physicians in the Northeast and South were significantly less likely to receive psychotropics in combination than patients in the Midwest, Conclusion : Although general practice physicians contribute to the use of multiple psychotropic medications, patients visiting psychiatric specialists are much more likely to be provided combination therapy.
