Abstract

Aims

The approach to mental illness and specifically in serious mood disorders, long-term treatments that improve adhesion as continuous treatments ensure compliance are needed, they minimize the risk of relapse and readmission and therefore increase the chances to have a good fit and social, relational and even occupational functioning.

It is analysed the dose of paliperidone palmitate employed for stabilization and family satisfaction at the time of stabilization is analysed in the study.

Results

The mean dose of Paliperidone Palmitate is 138 mg. The patient diagnosed with schizophrenia are 47.6% and the average dose is 132.5 mg. Chronic delusional disorder is 2.3% and the mean dose 50 mg. Other comorbility mood disorders are 21.4% and the mean dose is 183 mg. Other disorders (F70, F72…) are 28.5% and mean dose 133 mg. The average family satisfaction (minimum 1 up to 5) is 4, with the highest score among patients diagnosed with F20 Schizophrenia.
