Letter to the Editor

Sir: We were delighted to read about the experience of Drs. Frankenburg and Kalunian with clozapine in elderly patients. We share their ideas about both the risks and benefits of clozapine in this population. In our opinion, however, any definitive judgment about this matter is premature. Appropriately designed studies are necessary before a final decision is made about the safety and efficacy of clozapine in the elderly population.
