In England, thioridazine use has plummeted in recent years after the goverment stated that it should only be used by consultant psychiatrists as a second-line treatment for schizophrenia. This was because of the risk of arrhythmias. Anyway, I recently saw a report that claimed the risk of arrhythmias with thioridazine was no higher than with haloperidol!
