Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article regarding the growing problem of "polypharmacy". This is the practice of giving seniors multiple medications often to combat side effects of other medications. The report contends that one-third of Americans ages 57 to 85 are taking five or more prescriptions. It also states that those with chronic conditions are taking 20 or more medications. Doc asserts that this is criminal but no one will go to jail.
