America’s Other Drug Problem – Polypharmacy
Ensuring that the American people get the most benefit from advances in pharmacology is a critical component of improving the health care system (source: Institute of Medicine).
The risk of adverse drug events is 15% with 2 medications, 50% with 5 medications, and 80% with >7 medications.
39% of those over age 65 now use 5 or more medications – a 70% increase in polypharmacy over 12 years.
Pharmacies often miss severe interactions between 2 medications (source: Chicago Tribune). Protecting the public from severe interactions involving multiple medications is even more difficult.
