About half of Americans aged 65 and older take five or more medications, many of whom mix prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements. Add to this statistic the fact that adverse drug reactions occur two to three times more frequently in seniors, and you have a really good reason to check for drug interactions with you and/or your loved ones. There are many drug interaction checkers available online, but we like this one in particular.

Of course, these resources may not cover every interaction scenario and you should also consult your physician, as well.
