Medication Management

Medication management is a challenge for adults of all ages, but for the elderly, physical limitations can make it particularly challenging to take medicine according to a set schedule. When a person forgets to take a pill at the prescribed time, it is a good idea to consult with a pharmacist before adjusting the dosage on one's own.

Why Medication Management is important:

In order to be effective, both prescription (Rx) and over-the-counter drugs (OTC) should be taken according to a physician's instructions. Failure to comply with the timing and dosage of prescription medications is closely related to drug interactions and serious side effects.

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, a report in the journal "Hypertension" found people over the age of 65 were more likely to forget to take medications for symptom-free conditions than for diseases with obvious symptoms.
