  • Abstract  

    Globally, schizophrenia is a leading cause of years lost to disability, with a particularly large burden among adolescents and young adults.[1] Although antipsychotic medications reduce psychotic symptoms and greatly decrease the risk of relapse, their effectiveness in realworld practice is decreased by non-adherence.[2] Non adherence rates have been reported up to 40-60% in the literature.[3] Despite this high prevalence, providers are often unaware of this issue and generally overestimate medication adherence in their patients.
