Are Your Prescriptions Killing You?

How to Prevent Dangerous Interactions, Avoid Deadly Side Effects, and Be Healthier with Fewer Drugs

  • customer reviews
In an epidemic of overmedication, where can you turn for help?

We’ve all read the headlines: prescription drugs can kill you. If that’s the case, why are so many Americans, particularly those sixty and older, given so many pills with no regard to how they interact with one another?

Fifth-generation pharmacist Armon B. Neel, Jr., is on a mission to help you and your loved ones understand what you need to know about the risks, dangers, and benefits of prescription drugs. He explains what facts need to be taken into account when prescribing medication to older patients and the catastrophic results that occur when they’re not. Armon gives you the information you need to be certain that you’re getting the right dosage of the right medicine, and he arms you with the most effective questions to ask doctors.

Rich with real-life case studies, this groundbreaking book offers older people, who are most at risk—and the boomers who often care for them—a road map to better health. This gripping narrative provides essential information for anyone who depends on prescription medications, and reading it may save a loved one’s life—or your own.
