There’s a drug for that…
As we age we often develop an increasingly complex mix of health conditions — and each one can require yet another prescription. On average, adults in OECD countries are on seven prescription medications. And each new medication increases the risk of side effects and interactions. Adverse drug events are now a leading cause of hospitalization, disability, and death.
Seniors are particularly vulnerable
Aging affects our ability to process medications, as well as our resistance to adverse effects. One of the biggest health hazards for seniors is falling — often a result of multiple medications, which can cause cognitive difficulties and affect balance.
