Tucson Medical Center: Effects of Medication – What You Need to Know
People 65 years and older take prescribed medications more frequently than any other age group in the United States.
This puts them more at risk for overmedication, drug interactions, and other serious side-effects. Some dosages that are fine for a younger adult might be too much for an older adult with a slower metabolism. Some medications are not advised for older adults at all. Learn some common effects different medications can have on older adults when TMC Pharmacy presents on what you need to know about your medications.
Most presentations will be available online using our TMC HealthCare YouTube page or TMC for Seniors Facebook page. You will not need an account on YouTube, you can access the online presentation at: www.youtube.com/c/TMCHealthCare/Live and the feed will start automatically when the presentation begins. Most presentations will be available on our YouTube channel afterwards to watch at a later time.
