The point of prescription drugs is to help us get or feel well. Yet an increasing number of people—typically older ones with multiple chronic conditions—are taking drugs and supplements they don’t need or that may be interacting with one another in harmful ways. Studies show that some patients can improve their health by taking fewer drugs.
Join us for a lively discussion on how to simplify your medications, including how to talk with your doctor about “de-prescribing”. You may be able to decrease the number of pills you take and improve the quality of your life at the same time.
