Abstract

There is more need in the pharmacotherapeutical treatment, particularly in psychopharmacotherapy, to take into account the psychological factors that influence the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of treatment. It’s important to takes into account the holistic approach to the patient and a “brain-mind” concept is also inevitable in this approach. Inefficiency of pharmacotherapy, treatment-resistence, non-adherence, nocebo etc. are only some of the phenomena that require a psychodynamic approach and the kind of creativity in prescribing drugs.
