Use of Anti-Psychotics in Elderly Demented Patients
Reviewed here. The causes of death were varied and non-specific. The sample size was large. The rate of death was low. The wrong statistical test was applied. Although the risk of death is higher on typical anti-psychotics than on atypicals, the atypicals carry no black box warning. This is the wacko world of the moronic FDA. That agency should be disbanded.
