For people on Medicare, taking the time to review their medications with their pharmacist and their physician could have a hugely positive impact on their health.
One of my clients was so shocked at the comatose state of her mother that she removed her from her nursing home and had her own physician perform a complete pharmacy review.
The result? At the physician’s request, her mother stopped taking SIX of her NINE maintenance medications and went from zombie status to being human again.
Never stop ANY medication WITHOUT the advice of your doctor. But just because you’ve been taking something for while doesn’t necessarily mean you need to keep taking it.
