Patients' representations of antidepressants: a clue to nonadherence?

Published in The Clinical Journal of Pain. 2007, vol. 23, no. 8, p. 669-675
Abstract Antidepressants are prescribed frequently to chronic pain patients due to their pain relief effects. This medication raises major adherence issues. Despite the adverse effects, little is known about the factors that may jeopardize adherence in chronic pain patients. We carried out a qualitative study to investigate chronic pain patients' representations of antidepressants as compared with pain-free controls.
