Abstract

A four week longitudinal study was conducted to assess the relationship between insight, psychopathology and treatment compliance in schizophrenia using Insight and Treatment Attitude Questionnaire (ITAQ), Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) and Medication Adherence Rating Scale (MARS). Study sample consisted of 50 patients with schizophrenia diagnosed as per diagnostic criteria of research of WHO with a mean period of illness being 5.32 years. There was substantial psychopathology at intake which improved significantly after 4 weeks. Similar changes were found with the scores of insight and compliance over 4 weeks. Insight and compliance were positively correlated to each other at intake and at the end of 4 weeks. Both of these were negatively correlated with psychopathology scores on both the occasions. Stepwise logistic regression was applied with compliance as dependent variable and psychopathology and insight as independent variables on both the visits and it was found that most powerful predictor of compliance on first visit is insight on first visit [ R = .636] and most powerful predictor of compliance on second visit is compliance on first visit [ R = .838].
