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