In A. Gedye's article "Neuroleptic-Induced Dementia Documented in Four Adults With Mental Retardation" (Volume 36, No. 3, pp. 182-186), the correct dosage of thioridazine for Patient 1 should have read 20 mg, not 2 mg. Additional questions about the prescribed dosages of medications reported in this article have been raised by a US. physician who specializes in developmental disabilities and psychopathology. Dr. Gedye has assured that the other dosages reported in her article are correct and consistent with guidelines published in the Canadian Cornperdurn of Pharmaceutical and Specialties.
