This study uses drug claims data from the National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System (NPDUIS) Database to examine the use of antipsychotics among seniors living in long-term care (LTC) facilities, and the concurrent use of antipsychotics with other psychotropic drugs, which further increases risk of side effects.
