For a young and healthy person, taking even one prescription medication seems like too much. However, for seniors and elderly folks, statistic has shown that the average elderly patient is taking more than five prescription medications.
Since different drugs may have different effects and interactions with one another, taking exactly how it is prescribed is the only way to ensure there are no complications. However, if the elderly person is having forgetfulness at times, or other signs of memory problems or Alzheimer's, it could be very easy to mix up the prescription and dosage.
