• Gill SS. et al. – compared the incidence of
admissions to the hospital for stroke in older adults receiving atypical and typical antipsychotics (AP).
– N = 32,710 patients with dementia (17,845 had
been dispensed an atypical AP and 14,865 had been dispensed a typical AP; ≥ 65 y/o; Canadians.
• Jalbert JJ. et al. – study to quantify the
association between AP use and the risk of diabetes onset among NH residents with dementia.

– Conclusions – typical AP were associated with an
increase risk of developing diabetes. Atypical AP were not associated with an increase in risk of developing diabetes.
