    As many as many as 144,000 people suffering from dementia are being given anti-psychotic drugs unnecessarily, according to a review ordered by the Department of Health.

    Excessive use of the medication causes an estimated 1,800 deaths and almost as many strokes among older people every year, the study revealed.

    The care services minister, Phil Hope, accepted all the recommendations in the review and promised a fundamental change in the treatment of those suffering from dementia.
