Harm from medication used by the elderly.
Alan Lukazewski, WEA Trust

Alan Lukazewski learned about adverse drug reactions in older adults about 15 years ago. Seniors are dealing with a triple threat. Older adults often have complex drug regimens to treat their multiple health conditions, and that puts them at risk of taking the wrong dosages. And taking so many medications increases the chance of negative interactions. In addition, many medications that work well for younger people have an adverse effect on the elderly.
