WHAT IS THE BENNETT POLYPHARMACY PROFILE?

PolypharmacyOlder Americans (65 or older) make up nearly 14% of the American population and this number continues to grow.  Many in this age group take multiple prescription medications for a chronic condition or disability in addition to many over the counter medicines and herbal supplements.
