…………………………
Antipsychotic use may be associated with an increased risk of VTE. At present there are insufficient data available to determine any difference in risk between atypical and conventional antipsychotics, or between individual drugs. All possible risk factors for VTE should be identified before and during antipsychotic treatment and preventive measures undertaken
