I don't know what criteria they used to determined who in the study batch had which kinds of dementia. Not all are Alzheimers dementia.
Antipsychotics do drive away the psychosis such as delusions and hallucinations with aggressive behavior for the ones with DAT. It does not stop the delerium or cognitive deficits. Even so its a deteriorating course.
For the ones with Lewy body dementia, antipsychotices make them more psychotic as in worse. Hence, the reason to delineate who has what dementia rather than just slinging antipsychotics at them. Its a rapidly deteriorating course for this kind of dementia. All that you can use here are Trazadone and Aricept-like drugs.
But i'll keep my eye on the CATIE trial which has some inherent study desin problems like all studies.

Anti-psychotics are thrown around like M and M's in old peoples homes. It is most undignified.

Pharmacutical Statin drugs cannot distinguish between good or bad cholesterol in the body. Do you realize your brain is made up of cholesterol material which is being depleted by the Statin drugs? The result being: Cholesterol depletion in the brain is a large cause for dementia. Red Yeast Rice is far better then the Statin drugs for reducing cholesterol without the loss of mental abilities.
Alzheimer Decease is just a false excuse for another defective product being forced on the public like the psychotropic drugs. Get smart. Do some research.
