Abstract
Background and Aim: Adherence to medication is an important part of patient management, Adherence rates may be lower among patients with psychiatric disorders compared to patients with a physical disorder. Our aim was to measure adherence to medication among outpatient psychiatric patients, and the factors associated with it.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Al-Amal Hospital for Mental Health in Al-Madinah. Eligible participants met with one of the data collectors for assessment of their adherence. Adherence was investigated by use of the Morisky Medication Adherence Scale plus Information about the demographics and reasons of difficult adherence were collected. Descriptive Statistical analysis was performed using
Statistical Package for Social Sciences, version 20 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA). P< 0.05 was considered as significant. Correlation between adherence and other independent variables was calculated.

Results: A total of 385 patients met the inclusion criteria and participated in the study. Of those, 244 (63.4%) were males while the remaining 141(36.6%) were females. Half of the patients (51.2%) reported low adherence to their psychiatric medication, with statistically significant differences was observed related to sex and education level.
