Due to the fact we specialize in helping Seniors, we were recently contacted by a representative from DrugWatch.com. We learned that while persons 65 years of age and older comprise only 13 percent of the population, they account for roughly one-third of all medications prescribed in the United States. Older adults are more likely to be prescribed long-term and multiple prescriptions. DrugWatch.com aims to educate the public about prescription and over-the-counter medications, drug recalls, medical devices and current developments in the medical field.
I took the time to look at the sight and was impressed with how comprehensive it is. They not only describe why a drug is prescribed, but also side effects and if there are any FDA warnings against the drug or lawsuits.
If you are a Senior or are a caregiver, are currently taking medications or plan to add medication or medical procedures, check out DrugWatch.com as a resource for you or your family.
