Psychological and pharmacological medication in psychosis: their meaning in the transference

Summary. This paper analyzes how pharmacological medication meets with psychological medication, and the role they play in the patient's inner world. The Author tries to give an example from his work with a patient, in which the name of the pharmacological medication, the way in which it was given, its shape and colour and the unconscious relationship with the doctor or analyst as “medicator”, all played a very important role.
With every patient, but perhaps more particularly with psychotic patients, the meaning, in the transference, of the dialectic and antidialectic relationship between pharmacological medication and the psychoanalytic one covers a very important field of research, and this paper is intended to be an introduction to the subject.
