In an epidemic of overmedication, where can you turn for help? We've all read the headlines: prescription drugs can kill you.

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.
