Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this article, the authors explore trends in intended usage of atypical antipsychotics to treat dementia following the United States Food and Drug Administration advisory safety warning issued in April 2005. Analysis suggests that physician-reported intended usage of antipsychotics to treat dementia has declined by nearly 50 percent over the past five years. When reviewing the products intended for use in the treatment of patients with dementia, atypical intended usage has declined considerably while the intended usage of anti-Alzheimer's disease treatments has grown to replace those shares.
