Antipsychotics: efficiency under question. Significant discrepancies are revealed in a comparison between prescriptions of antipsychotic drugs in one sector and the recommendations and perceptions of the different antipsychotics on the part of prescribers of the same sector. These divergences can, in part, be accounted for by the difference between the efficiency of a product as noted in psychiatric practice and its efficacy as measured in standardised conditions.
