Co-author Professor Robin Jacoby, an expert in old age psychiatry at the University of Oxford said: "A large number are on medication for no good reason at all.
"It's a question of education."
He explained it was not entirely clear why the risk of death increased but one explanation could be people on the drugs being more inactive so at risk of things like chest infections and pneumonia.

Doctors often prescribe these drugs because they act as sedatives for difficult patients, says researcher Robin Jacoby, a geriatric psychiatrist at the University of Oxford in England.
Often an underlying medical problem, such as an untreated urinary tract infection, causes an Alzheimer's patient to behave aggressively, Jacoby says.
But overburdened doctors will prescribe a drug rather than take the time to figure out what's causing the patient's distress, he says. "These patients are drugged up to the eyeballs," Jacoby says.
Jacoby and his colleagues studied 165 people with severe Alzheimer's living in nursing homes in four cities in Great Britain, where the drugs also are heavily used. The patients had been taking an anti-psychotic drug such as thioridazine, chlorpromazine, haloperidol, trifluoperazin or risperidone for at least three months.

Nice has a reputation for excellence, although critics can be scathing. 'The acronym is misleading,' says Professor Robin Jacoby, emeritus professor of old age psychiatry at Oxford University. 'I say it stands for the National Institute for Cutting Expenditure.' The body has to make difficult decisions conscious of the political demands of the minister, the power wielded by leading pharmaceutical companies, and the demands of patients, who have successfully used the courts to gain access to the expensive drugs they need.
