To the EditorJAMA Psychiatry published a network meta-analysis on pharmacological interventions for delirium in which the authors conclude that “…haloperidol plus lorazepam seems to be a superior therapeutic choice in patients with delirium.”1 As delirium is an important health care problem, initiatives for improvement are applauded. However, we would like to point out some concerns arising from the conclusions from this article.
