Antipsychotics are widely used to
treat psychiatric disorders in older
patients. While the growing number
of second-generation antipsychotics
(SGAs) has increased options for patients,
it has also complicated clinical
decision-making. Data from the
American Psychiatric Association’s
(APA’s) Practice Research Network
indicated disproportionately high use
of antipsychotics and benzodiazepine
medications among older patients compared
with those under age 65.
