Excessive Medication Can Slow Down Walking in Older Adults
Polypharmacy refers to the use of four or more medications by a patient. Multiple medications may increase the risk of falls, frailty, disability and even death. However, taking too many medications may not be essential for adults. Polypharmacy may also be a problem for older adults due to side effects or interaction that results from the use of different medications.
