Haldol Drug Description
HALDOL®
(haloperidol) Injection
(For Immediate Release)

WARNING
Increased Mortality in Elderly Patients with Dementia-Related
Psychosis
Elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with antipsychotic
drugs are at an increased risk of death. Analyses of seventeen placebo-controlled
trials (modal duration of 10 weeks), largely in patients taking atypical antipsychotic
drugs, revealed a risk of death in drug-treated patients of between 1.6 to
1.7 times the risk of death in placebo-treated patients. Over the course of
a typical 10-week controlled trial, the rate of death in drug-treated patients
was about 4.5%, compared to a rate of about 2.6% in the placebo group. Although
the causes of death were varied, most of the deaths appeared to be either
cardiovascular (e.g., heart failure, sudden death) or infectious (e.g., pneumonia)
in nature. Observational studies suggest that, similar to atypical antipsychotic
drugs, treatment with conventional antipsychotic drugs may increase mortality.
The extent to which the findings of increased mortality in observational studies
may be attributed to the antipsychotic drug as opposed to some characteristic(s)
of the patients is not clear. HALDOL Injection is not approved for the treatment
of patients with dementia-related psychosis (see WARNINGS).
