Venous thromboembolism (VTE) represents a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Antipsychotic treatment is associated with an increased risk of thromboembolic disease, an effect that seems to be constant across the spectrum of distinct agents. This study sought to delineate the effect of new antipsychotic use on the risk of recurrent thromboembolic events after a first episode of either deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
