This study estimates the national trends in antipsychotic polypharmacy among 6- to 24-year old patients in ambulatory care settings in the United States. It explores annual visit rates between 2007 and 2011, and identifies frequently used antipsychotic agents and mental disorder diagnoses associated with polypharmacy. In addition, several risk factors of antipsychotic polypharmacy were identified. This article discusses areas that urge attention and investigation. More specifically, despite a growing concern related to antipsychotic misuse, the rate that children and young adults were exposed to antipsychotic polypharmacy did not change over the 5-year period. Also, some patients received antipsychotics without any mental disorder diagnosis. View this paper
