(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.
