In this analysis, we described counts of new users of long-acting injectable antipsychotics (LAIAs) including paliperidone palmitate, risperidone microspheres, and haloperidol decanoate in the Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD). We estimated the two-week or four-week risk of mortality comparing (1) paliperidone palmitate users to risperidone microspheres users and (2) paliperidone palmitate users to haloperidol decanoate users. The study period included data from January 1, 2010 through June 30, 2022. We distributed this request to one Sentinel Data Partner on March 6, 2023.
