Objectives: To study the prevalence of psychiatric disorders or symptoms and psychotropic prescription patterns among patients who admitted with Dengue fever.

Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, discharge summaries of all the patients admitted with Dengue fever in a medical unit of the hospital from June 2017 to October 2017, were reviewed and details of psychotropic prescriptions, psychiatric consultations and psychiatric diagnosis were collected.

Results: About 14 patients (5.71%) received psychotropic medication during admission. Only 4 patients received psychiatric consultation. Out of 14 patients, 9 patients were prescribed clonazepam, 3 patients were prescribed quetiapine. Rest of the patients received sertraline, and amitriptyline.

Conclusion: In view of the recent epidemics of Dengue in various Indian states and all over the world, it is important to evaluate the burden of the disease on mental functioning, as untreated psychiatric illness can lead to increased medical morbidity, higher healthcare costs, and can delay or prevent recovery from medical illness.

Amaç: Dang humması ile başvuran hastalardaki psikiyatrik bozuklukların veya semptomların ve psikotropik reçete sıklığının yaygınlığının araştırılması.

Materyal ve Metot: Bu tanımlayıcı çalışmada, Haziran 2017 - Ekim 2017 tarihleri ​​arasında hastanenin tıbbi birimlerinde Dang humması ile başvuran tüm hastaların taburculuk özetleri gözden geçirildi ve psikotropik reçete, psikiyatrik konsültasyon ve psikiyatrik tanı detayları alındı.

Bulgular: Yaklaşık 14 hastaya (%5,71) başvuru sırasında psikotropik ilaçlar verilmişti. Sadece 4 hasta psikiyatrik konsültasyon almıştı. 14 hastanın 9'unda klonazepam, 3'ünde ketiapin reçete edilmişti. Hastaların geri kalan kısmına sertralin ve amitriptilin verilmişti.

Sonuç: Çeşitli Hint ülkelerinde ve dünyada son zamanlardaki Dang humması salgınları nedeniyle, hastalığın zihinsel işlevlere etkilerini değerlendirmek önemlidir, zira tedavi edilmeyen psikiyatrik hastalıklar tıbbi morbiditenin artmasına, sağlık masraflarının yükselmesine, iyileşme sürecinin gecikmesine veya ortadan kalkmasına sebep olabilir.
