Abstract
Adherence to antidepressant treatment has been shown to range from 30 to 70%. The aim of this study was to compare the patient's self-report of adherence with the doctors' estimation of adherence and therapeutic alliance in 104 outpatients with mood and/or anxiety disorder treated with antidepressants. The adherence scores estimated by the patients and the doctors were significantly different, the doctors underestimating adherence in 29% of cases and overestimating it in 31% of cases compared to the patients' evaluation. Adherence measured by drug plasma concentration, despite being higher than expected from previously published reports, was in line with the patients' self-reported score but not the doctors' estimation. Finally, the patients' and the doctors' Helping Alliance scores were not related to adherence self-report.
