Different data on the influence of psychological factors on the efficacy of psychopharmacology (placebo-effect, Hawthorne-effect, practice-effect) are known in literature. Therefore the research of the interaction between pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy is very important. The new hypothesis is being suggested that psychopharmacotherapy is much more effective in case of: a) willing and conscious taking the medication, and b) keeping to the strict setting of drug administration by the psychiatrists.

KEY WORDS: placebo-effect, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy
