MedStrong: Shed Your Meds for a Better, Healthier You
MedStrong: Shed Your Meds for a Better Healthier You tells of the need to keep medications in check throughout the aging process. Why is this necessary? Overmedication increases side effects that can impact one’s well-being and quality of life, and can cause unintended consequences such as falls, hospitalizations, and traffic accidents. Many individuals remain on medications far longer than necessary, and having medications added when deprescribing a medication may be a better treatment option.
