chlorpromazineR: 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 <doi:10.1176/appi.ajp.2009.09060802>, Leucht et al. 2016 <doi:10.1093/schbul/sbv167>), 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.
