Antipsychotic medications enable many individuals with schizophrenia to live more rewarding and productive lives. However, this benefit hinges on patients taking medications as prescribed, and as many as half of all patients exhibit some degree of treatment nonadherence. The current review summarizes the results of a survey on medication nonadherence that was completed by 41 experts in the field. Results confirm the prevalence of the problem, and provide practical guidance for clinicians on measurement and management of nonadherence.
