Aripiprazole, Chlorpromazine, or Haloperidol could have a potentially elevated risk of Acute Coronary Syndrome in Schizophrenia


Patients with schizophrenia who received aripiprazole, chlorpromazine, or haloperidol could have a potentially elevated risk of developing acute coronary syndrome, particularly at the start of therapy.

These three antipsychotic agents were …associated with an increased risk in the first 30 days of use, and the risk decreased as the duration of therapy increased. Sensitivity analyses using propensity score-adjusted modeling showed that the results were similar to those of multiple regression analysis.
