Parkinson’s News Today (9/9, Wexler) reported, “The use of antipsychotic medications is substantially more common among people with Parkinson’s disease than in the general population,” investigators concluded in a study that “included data for 20,994 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s between 1996 and 2015 as well as data for 142,944 people without Parkinson’s who were not on antipsychotics in the year before the follow-up period started.” The study also revealed that “antipsychotic use among Parkinson’s patients is evident several years before the disease is diagnosed.” The findings were published online in the journal Parkinsonism and Related Disorders.
