Seniors taking 20 pills a day

In the majority of situations no Rx interaction profiles are undertaken nor are reviews of the nutrient depletion caused by Rx. Also to be considered is a thorough review of side effects and risk of developing other conditions as a result of taking a drug.

Our Health Forensics (c) model covers these concerns as part of the health coaching we have done for 30+ years.

From a Medco Health Solutions survey of seniors 65 and older who take medications. [Note that 20% of insured seniors did not take any medication on a regular basis.]
