Convert Antipsychotic Doses to Chlorpromazine Equivalents.

As different antipsychotic medications have different potencies, the doses of different medications cannot be directly compared. Various strategies are used to convert doses into a common reference so that comparison is meaningful. Chlorpromazine (CPZ) has historically been used as a reference medication into which other antipsychotic doses can be converted, as "chlorpromazine-equivalent doses". Using conversion keys generated from widely-cited scientific papers (Gardner et. al 2010 , Leucht et al. 2016 ), antipsychotic doses are converted to CPZ (or any specified antipsychotic) equivalents. The use of the package is described in the included vignette. Not for clinical use.
