Alzheimers disease (AD) patients who receive antipsychotics have more morbidity, as indicated by a greater number of days spent in the hospital, compared with their counterparts who were not prescribed these agents, new research suggests.
During a 2-year period, AD patients taking antipsychotics had greater than 50% more accumulated hospital days than those not taking antipsychotics, with the strongest association observed during the first 6 months. The study was published online in the Journal of the American Medical Directors Organization.
