Polypharmacy and De-prescribing Strategies

In a traditional, busy primary care practice, your health care provider may at times be hesitant to discontinue medications started by other specialists. Sometimes patients can remain on medications for years even though a condition may have improved. As a Geriatrics focused service, we are trained in seeing the big picture and prioritize conditions and medications that will bring the most benefit to the patient without compromising their quality of life. Geriatricians are well-versed in drug side effects and the negative effects that may occur from taking multiple drugs. Through our personalized care process, we are passionate in helping our patients reduce their pill burden in a safe manner.
