Abstract: Antipsychotic Medication Treatment Patterns & Polypharmacy Safety

Limited evidence exists regarding the risks and benefits of antipsychotic (AP) polypharmacy, however, antipsychotic polypharmacy is not uncommon and is compounded by widespread off-label prescribing. This study uses repeatable methods and real world data to profile AP users and track AP treatment patterns, polypharmacy and hospitalization and side effect risks.
