Overview

Research shows that older adults who fail to take prescribed medications are 76 percent more likely to experience a significant decline in their overall health than those who take all medications as prescribed. When appropriately prescribed, administered, and monitored, medications are a cost-effective way to help older adults maintain health, recover from illness, or control symptoms of chronic disease.
