Antipsychotic Drugs Don't Cut Aggression in Mentally Disabled

By Trista Kelley

Jan. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Antipsychotic drugs are an ineffective treatment for aggressive behavior in patients born with moderate to severe mental disabilities, according to an article published in the Lancet today.

Doctors measured the effects of two antipsychotic drugs, haloperidol, a generic sold by companies including Novartis AG, or Johnson & Johnson's Risperdal, on 86 non-psychotic patients. The participants showed no significant improvement against a placebo in terms of adverse side effects, aberrant behavior, quality of life and the effects on caregivers.

``The routine prescription of antipsychotic drugs early in the management of aggressive challenging behavior, even in low doses, should no longer be regarded as a satisfactory form of care,'' the authors wrote in the article.
