(WHAS11)  Polypharmacy means “many drugs” and it happens when a patient is taking several medications, without a single physician monitoring them all.  It can be a serious health concern, especially among older adults.

Dr. Demetra Antimisiaris, with the U of L Polypharmacy Initiative, stopped by the WHAS11 studios to talk more about the initiative.

You can get more health tips from U of L Healthcare at the WHAS11 Health & Fitness Expo coming up Friday and Saturday at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

Also, tune into WHAS11 News at 7:30 p.m. for a Health Expo special, hosted by Angie Fenton.
