The problem of people taking multiple medications is called polypharmacy. Many people and their caregivers are aware of the problem, but, too often, their health care professionals are not If you google the keywords, taking too many medications, chances are. Polypharmacy.
A Totally Modern Epidemic. If you google the keywords, taking too many medications, chances are you will come across a term called Polypharmacy. The word has been used for a long time to describe the problem of patients are taking multiple medications. Although the elderly are most likely to “suffer” from polypharmacy, people with psychiatric conditions and many other chronic.
Medication Overload: America’s Other Drug Problem, a report released in April 2019 by the Lown Institute, chronicles the epidemic of polypharmacy in. “And as this edition shows, we know more than ever about the current state of polypharmacy, a modern epidemic which has the potential to blight the lives of millions of older people. Yet progress is slow,” Goodwin and Kaskie state. Societies should be measured by the way their most vulnerable citizens are treated.
Similar to the international effort required to deal with an epidemic, the International Group for Reducing Inappropriate Medication Use and Polypharmacy (IGRIMUP) was founded to combat the iatrogenic epidemic of inappropriate medication use and polypharmacy. Polypharmacy is a growing public health problem which could be greatly reduced by the integration of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into health care systems. Defined as the use of five or more drugs at one time, polypharmacy affects up to 40% of US seniors, while 12% of those over age 65 take ten or more daily drugs. Nevertheless, successful reduction of ‘the epidemic’ has tremendous, potentially beneficial economic consequences representing a triple win–win game: improved health and QoL for millions, and reduced costs of drugs, superfluous evaluations and hospitalizations. 79 Health economists may evaluate the impact of de-prescribing an average of 6–7 drugs in older adults with polypharmacy, on health expenditures.
The problem of polypharmacy, as the multitude of drugs is called, and the side effects they cause is largely a result of our fragmented health care system, rushed doctor visits, and direct. Multiple studies point to the dangers of polypharmacy use among older adults, including potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs), anticholinergic burden, drug–drug interaction-related adverse drug reactions. 26 – 30 The prevalence of polypharmacy use and inappropriate prescribing in the elderly is a global phenomenon reported in multiple countries. 4, 31, 32 The consequential.
