An assessment for an underlying cause of behavior is needed before prescribing antipsychotic medication for symptoms of dementia . [32] Antipsychotics in old age dementia showed a modest benefit compared to placebo in managing aggression or psychosis, but this is combined with a fairly large increase in serious adverse events. Thus, antipsychotics should not be used routinely to treat dementia with aggression or psychosis, but may be an option in a few cases where there is severe distress or risk of physical harm to others. [33] Psychosocial interventions may reduce the need for antipsychotics. [34]

American Charles Osborne had hiccups for 68 years, from 1922 to February 1990, [24] and was entered in the Guinness World Records as the man with the longest attack of hiccups, an estimated 430 million hiccups. [25] In 2007, Florida teenager Jennifer Mee gained media fame for hiccuping around 50 times per minute for more than five weeks. [26] [27] Christopher Sands, a Briton, hiccupped an estimated 10 million times in a 27-month period from February 2007 to May 2009. His condition, which meant that he could hardly eat or sleep, was eventually discovered to be caused by a tumor on his brain stem pushing on nerves causing him to hiccup every two seconds, 12 hours a day. His hiccups stopped in 2009 following surgery. [28]

Atypical antipsychotics such as clozapine and quetiapine may be less likely to reduce the effects of anti-Parkinson agents. Consider therapy modification
