As noted in this article, many patients are taking five or more prescription medications. It is difficult to predict all of the possible drug-drug interactions that can occur when you are on multiple medications. The term for this is “polypharmacy”. Many find that one or more medications can be safely discontinued, simplifying daily medications and reducing side effects from them.

At Dr. Smith Direct Care, we will review each of your medications at every visit and consider whether or not we can reduce, or eliminate any of them. You will be healthier as a result.
