    NICE issues antipsychotic medication note

    Mon 10 Dec 2018

    11.12.18 Antipsychotic medications should only be tried if a person with dementia is at risk of harming themselves or others, or if they are severely distressed, says the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in a new information note. The antipsychotic should be tried “alongside other activities to try to help their distress,” says NICE, which recommends first attempting to calm the person with things like music, exercise and aromatherapy. “The person should be assessed at least every six weeks and the antipsychotic should be stopped if it is not helping or is no longer needed,” it says. “The person does not have to have an antipsychotic. There are pros and cons...” The information note is intended to help people with dementia, family carers and their health professionals discuss the options. https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng97/resources/antipsychotic-medicines-for-treating-agitation-aggression-and-distress-in-people-living-with-dementia-patient-decision-aid-pdf-4
