Abrams presented a poster on another study, entitled Alternative and “Off-Label” Uses of Antipsychotic Medications in Medicaid, which used Medicaid administrative data from a single state (Maryland) and year (7/2000 to 6/2001) to estimate rates of alternative uses for antipsychotics. This study found a substantial alternative use of antipsychotics, especially for mood disorders and suggested distinctive patterns for the most experienced mental health care providers in alternative use of these medications.
