Antipsychotics For Dementia "Under-Reported"

"Research from the U.K. finds that “the true scale of anti-psychotic usage in dementia may be under-estimated. Usage may be up to 46 per cent greater than official figures suggest.” The research also finds that antipsychotic prescriptions for people with dementia living in care homes were nearly 3.5 times higher than for those living at home, and that it was possible to reduce or withdraw anti-psychotics for more than 60 per cent of patients with dementia.
