[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Schizophrenia is one of the top ten psychiatric diseases in Taiwan. The obesity problem of chronic schizophrenia patients has become seriously due to the side effects of psychiatric medicines and sedentary life-style in the long-term care unit. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to describe the phenomena of obesity for the chronic schizophrenia patients. This survey study is to measure the Body Mass Index of 179 chronic schizophrenia patients by following the standard of Department of Health Executive Yuan. Results indicated that 51.4% of subjects were overweight and 28.5% were obesity. Analysis of the psychiatric medicines, which are easily induced overweight, used by the chronic schizophrenia patients identified the following ordering percentage of clozapine, olanzapine, quetiapine, thioridazine, chlorpromazine, risperidone, amisulprid, haloperidol, ziprasidone were related to their overweight. Total 34.1% of the chronic schizophrenia patients were overweight originated from using above nine medicines. Based on the findings, it is suggested that health care professionals in the long-term care unit of chronic schizophrenia patients should design a body-weight controlling program for the patients who have taken these nine psychiatric medicines to prevent their overweight. For the obesity problem, a body-weight reduction program should be conducted for the chronic schizophrenia patients. Since the physical and cognitive retardation, body-weight controlling and reduction programs would be recommended as the individualized interventions, and at the same time should consider the preventing strategies for the hazards of falling. In the long run, weight controlling and reduction programs might reduce the incidences of chronic illness such as hypertension and diabetics among chronic schizophrenia patients in the long-term care unit.
