Medications can help us in many ways. However, our bodies become more sensitive to medication effects as we age. Some medications may even carry more risk than benefit, causing falls, memory problems, or even hospitalizations. The more medications we take, the greater the risk. This is particularly important as 25% of Canadians over age 65 take at least 10 medications. Please join Allison Bell, Pharmacist, member of the Canadian Deprescribing Network, and passionate advocate for safe medication use to find out about medication risks and essential questions to ask your health care provider to help you prevent medication harms!
