Most old people are horribly over medicated.
They take something for this, something for that, something to compinsate the side effects of one drug, another for side effects on another. Most people over the age of 65 take about 10-20 pills a day.
Most MD's dont know jack shit about pharmacology. They just usually do the whole "Oh you got this...here I got this to help this and that etc." Without knowing the side effects etc. If you get an adverse reaction...well then they have something for that too.
