In this podcast, James Cave (Editor-in-Chief) and David Phizackerley (Deputy Editor) talk about the August 2022 issue of DTB. They discuss progress in reducing use of psychotropic medications in adults and children with a learning disability, autism or both (https://dtb.bmj.com/content/60/8/114). They also provide an overview of a study that assessed the effect of deprescribing antihypertensive medication in older people (https://dtb.bmj.com/content/60/8/118) and talk about a national safety alert relating to amiodarone (https://dtb.bmj.com/content/60/8/116).
