Antipsychotic use in pregnancy and congenital malformation risk

Researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark have published an updated analysis of linked data collected from Danish population-based healthcare registers, investigating major malformation risks among pregnancies exposed to antipsychotics in the first trimester in comparison with unexposed pregnancies. Robust sensitivity analyses were also conducted, including comparisons formed between exposed pregnancies, and pregnancies among women who only used antipsychotics prior to pregnancy, and separately against unexposed siblings.
