Change to section 4.4 - Special warnings and precautions for use

Increased Mortality in Elderly people with Dementia

Elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with antipsychotic drugs (conventional and atypical) are at an increased risk of death.

Data from two large observational studies showed that elderly people with dementia who are treated with antipsychotics are at a small increased risk of death compared with those who are not treated. There are insufficient data to give a firm estimate of the precise magnitude of the risk and the cause of the increased risk is not known.

 

Haldol Decanoate is not licensed for the treatment of dementia-related behavioural disturbances.

 

Venous thromboembolism

Cases of venous thromboembolism (VTE) have been reported with antipsychotic drugs. Since patients treated with antipsychotics often present with acquired risk factors for VTE, all possible risk factors for VTE should be identified before and during treatment with Haldol Decanoate and preventive measures undertaken

 

Change to section 4.8 - Undesirable effects

Cases of venous thromboembolism, including cases of pulmonary embolism and cases of deep vein thrombosis have been reported with antipsychotic drugs- Frequency unknown.
