Description: As we age, it is a common problem. You may see more than one doctor and each prescribes a different drug for a different illness. Before you know it, you’re taking several medications and feeling tired, dizzy, or nauseous. This could be interpreted as a new symptom for a new ailment and you are prescribed yet another drug. Before long you are taking a fist full of medications that make you feel even more unwell.
