STOMP

Stopping the overmedication of people with a learning disability (STOMP)

NHS England has found that many people with learning disabilities are sometimes inappropriately prescribed medication for behaviours seen as challenging. For many people the medication does not work and can lead to serious side-effects such as sedation, weight gain and difficulty moving.

We need to change this situation and review the use of medication if it is not working. Find out more by reading this leaflet.
