Anti-psychotic drugs tied to dementia

Researchers have claimed that some anti-psychotic drugs may actually be harmful for dementia patients as these could raise their death risk. The drugs have a powerful sedative effect so are often used when dementia patients become aggressive or distressed. Now, a new research, led by Harvard Medical School, has claimed that anti-psychotics shouldn't be used "in the absence of clear need" , the British Medical Journal' reported.
