Antipsychotics Linked With Sudden Cardiac Death
A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that the risk of sudden cardiac death is similar among all of the antipsychotics, including both newer and older antipsychotics. These medicines have a "black box warning" relating to an increased risk of death in elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis. This new study suggests that this risk may apply to patients of all ages taking an antipsychotic. For more information please visit: http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/short/360/3/225
