On Demand: Help! My Mother is on Drugs!

Summary

Older adults and their caregivers must be aware of prescriptive and non-prescriptive medications because the results can be deadly. Let’s just begin with Tylenol and possible side effects. Then consider high blood pressure medication, psychotropic drugs, herbal supplements and other over the counter drugs. Carrie Allen, who specializes in geriatric pharmacy, will help older adults and caregivers understand polypharmacy and health. Please submit specific questions in advance and don’t miss this very important Ask the Geriatrician session.
