General practitioners treat patients with psychiatric disorders, for whom they have to evaluate the indication of a psychotropic medication. In addition to the patient's symptoms, the clinician has to take into account transferential and countertransferential elements linked to the prescription. Sociological factors also influence both the patient and the clinician, partly due to the western society's value of performance. Consistent with the bio-psycho-social model of disease, we recommend that the evaluation of the indication of a psychotropic medication includes the patient's symptoms, but also the psychological and sociological factors.
