It is very common that patient with Alzheimer’s disease take anti-psychotic drugs on regular basis but such patients have double risk for pneumonia as compared to the other people who are not on anti-psychotic therapy. This research study is very useful for patients with anti-psychotic medications but such patients need few interventions to combat pneumonia.
