Why it matters: The BNF has a safety warning advising that zuclopenthixol acetate should only be used in hospitals as it is a relatively short-acting antipsychotic. Sometimes it may be confused with zuclopnethixol decanoate, a long-acting antipsychotic which is more commonly prescribed in primary care supporting long term maintenance.
Any prescribing on this measure could prompt investigation to ascertain if zuclopenthixol acetate was prescribed in error.
