Sir: In your May 1995 issue, Pitner et al. described the use of clozapine in four elderly psychotic patients and commented on a dearth of articles on this topic. However, in 1994, we published an article “Clozapine in the Elderly” in the Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neurology. Our article described the use of clozapine in eight patients, aged 68 to 80 years, who had a variety of diagnoses, including one patient with Parkinson’s dementia and patients with schizophrenia, depression, and dementia with depression.
