Sažetak

According to current medical opinion chronic mental diseases such as schizophrenia require life-long treatment. The choice of
antipsychotics is an important treatment factor, since their side-effects often influence patients' compliance with treatment. Severe
side-effects may cause the patients to reject such treatment, the latter being their right. In case a psychiatrist does not agree with the
patient's decision to interrupt his antipsychotic treatment regardless its serious side-effects, the former should be persistent in
convincing the patient to replace such drug with a more appropriate therapy.
