leucht2020 {chlorpromazineR}R Documentation

Antipsychotic equivalent key from Leucht et al. 2020 data


A list of antipsychotics and their olanzapine-equivalent doses, generated from the following file included with the package: system.file("extdata", "leucht2020.csv", package="chlorpromazineR").




A named list of 3 named lists (1 for each route) and each sub-list contains the conversion factors for each antipsychotic. The 3 top-level lists are named 'oral', 'sai', and 'lai' (route), and the lists they contain have names corresponding to the antipsychotic, e.g. 'olanzapine'.


This reference does not include chlorpromazine, so the conversion from leucht2016 is implied (i.e. chlorpromazine = olanzapine * 30).
