Les réticences vis-à-vis des médicaments. La marque de la culture

Abstract : In contrast with the numerous works which underline the passion of patients for medicines in France, this article proposes to study the phenomena of refusal or resistance to drugs, whether they are prescribed or not. Beyond some constants in the phenomena of resistance to medicines, which are also at the basis of bad compliance (such as the feeling of the inefficiency or of the dangerousness of drugs), some reasons of resistance may be analysed with reference to the cultural values to which people adhere. Through the study of practices relating to doses of treatment, to their duration, and to their supposed effects, and by examining in particular the case of psychotropic drugs, the author approaches this subject under the new angle of the cultural-religious origin of patients, and shows to what extent these resistances are partly culturally built.
