Increased Mortality in Elderly Patients with Dementia Related Psychosis
Elderly patients with dementia related psychosis treated with atypical antipsychotic drugs are at an increased risk of death
compared to placebo. Analyses of 17 placebo controlled trials (modal duration of 10 weeks, largely in patients taking atypical
antipyschotic drugs, revealed a risk of death in the drug treated patients of between 1.6 to 1.7 times that seen in placebo treated
patients. Over the course of a typical 10-week controlled trial, the rate of death in drug treated patients was about 4.5%
compared to a rate of about 2.6% in the placebo group. Although the causes of death were varied, most of the deaths appeared
to be either cardiovascular (e.g., heart failure, sudden death) or infectious (e.g., pneumonia) in nature. Observational studies
suggest that, similar to atypical antipsychotic drugs, treatment with conventional antipsychotic drugs may increase mortality.
The extent to which the findings of increased mortality in observational studies may be attributed to the antipsychotic drug as
opposed to some characteristic(s) of the patients is not clear.
This drug is not approved for the treatment of patients with dementia-related psychosis.
See PDR, USPDI or US Hospital Formulary Service for all-inclusive list of side effects.

can assist in making any necessary arrangements.
