The LBD event was very informative, helpful, and well done Thank you so much. I'm heartened to learn of all the resources out there.
Question: At one point in the event the doctors mentioned a number of medications or classes of medications that are especially risky to those with LBD and should only be prescribed very carefully. One was Haldol. Seroquel also mentioned as well as Anti-colinergic (sp?) and dopamine blocking drugs. Is there a list available?

Hello, I am so glad that you found the Summit helpful and enjoyed the content. There is a great resource for all things medications related to LBD, on the LBDA website. It's a PDF document and I've linked it here: https://www.lbda.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/medication_glossary_2015-1.pdf

I hope you find this helpful.
