Using Anti psychotics in Older Individuals with Dementia: Balancing Efficacy with Adverse Effects

It was mentioned in this report that the US government had concerns regarding the inappropriate use of antipsychotic medications like aripiprazole, risperidone, olanzapine and clozapine in individuals with dementias who lived at home or at assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
