Prescription fractionnée de psychotropes‎‎ : évaluation de l'impact préventif sur la répétition d'intoxications médicamenteuses volontaires

Abstract : Introduction : A few studies have investigated deliberate self poisoning prevention, especially among repeaters, whose psychopathological caracteristics are not well known. Aim : To compare the impact of weekly versus monthly dispensing among repeated attempters at risk of recurrence of deliberate self poisoning, and to highlight a psychopathological phenotype among these particular patients. Méthod : Nine patients with at least two previous attempts of deliberate self poisoning were randomly dispatched in two groups, the first with a weekly dispensing of the patients' treatment, the second with a monthly dispensing. At the time of the inclusion, we collected their pharmacological path, as well as their psychopathological and sociodemographic data thanks to the following evaluations : MINI, TCI-R, Goodman's Addiction Criteria, TAS 20, BIS-11, Hopelessness scale, RRRS, the anamnestic questionnaire and the clinical status. Results : After inclusion, patients with weekly dispensing had their first deliberate self poisoning episode later, and the recurrences were less frequent than patients with monthly dispensing. . Some psychopathological caracteristics were highligted in this population. Conclusion : Weekly dispensing may have beneficial consequences in short term prevention of repeated deliberate self poisoning. A study with a larger headcount will be needed to confirm these preliminary results.
