Polypharmacy - presented by Dr. Helen Kao

Learn about potential dangers for drug interactions or overuse as our bodies age.

Healthcare practitioners must appropriately use medication for multiple diseases and avoid risks often associated with multiple medication use such as adverse effects, drug/drug interactions, drug/disease interactions, and inappropriate dosing.
