Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The elderly population is especially subject to adverse drug reactions and interactions since drugs are such an integral part of their life-style (Allen, 1980). As people age, an increasing number sustain chronic conditions and become dependent on drugs in the performance of their daily activities. Whether these drugs are physician-prescribed or self-prescribed OTC (over-the-counter) drugs, there are problems of noncompliance, misuse, and abuse (Krupka & Vener, 1979).
