To the Editor: The recent review of the antipsychotic asenapine omitted recent US Food and Drug Administration warnings about allergic reactions and sudden death with this product. I think that there should be a note about this risk in an upcoming edition of this journal with a case example for discussion. For some patients and physicians, knowing this risk might be a relative contraindication for its use. Please consider doing this.
