Antipsychotic drugs and venous thromboembolism.

Abstract : Since preliminary case reports suggesting a possible association between first generation of antipsychotics and venous thromboembolism (VTE), consistent epidemiological data is now available suggesting a moderate association between antipsychotics and VTE. However, despite several hypotheses, the underlying mechanisms remain unknown or uncertain. In addition, if the association between antipsychotics and VTE is plausible, the intensity of this risk and the dose effect relationship do not have yet been determined. Prospective data is therefore needed in order to confirm and to quantify this association. Because of the level of uncertainty, the clinical impact on the prevention and the treatment of VTE in patients with a psychiatric illness appears to be low.
