Recent Reason for Hindering Medications for Perinatal Mental Disorders in Japan

Shunji Suzuki

Abstract


Background: We examined the recent reasons for hindering antipsychotic medications during pregnancy in Japan.

Methods: We retrospectively analyzed the medical charts of all women who gave birth after 22 weeks’ gestation at Japanese Red Cross Katsushika Maternity Hospital from August 2016 to July 2017.

Results: Four pregnant women with mental disorders (three schizophrenia and one adjustment disorder) kept the interruption of medications under their partners’ compulsion. All of their partners had a history of mental disorders (two schizophrenia, one anxiety disorder and one adjustment disorder).

Conclusion: In cases of pregnancy requiring mental health care, mental health care on partners seemed to be also needed.
