Many of us think that as we become old - like me! - That it is normal to get ill and so need drugs. My mum is on more than 20! But is this necessary? And if not why is this happneing?
The answers are here
It's mainly not necessary and worse - each medication drives a new sympton that drives a new drug - in the end you really are ill. And the cost? For my mum it is over $2,000 a year.
It's wrong but it is so hard to fight - I have to go to war with my mum's doctors and the staff of her home - not easy.
I don't think there is a case to take any drugs on a long term basis. The side effects build and most do do the job they claim.
