Savvy Senior: How to help your overmedicated parent

Dear Savvy Senior,

My 75-year-old mother is currently taking 16 different prescription and OTC medications, and I’m worried she’s taking way too many drugs. Can you suggest any resources that can help us?

Worried Daughter

Dear Worried,

Unfortunately, millions of older Americans are taking way too many medications today, which raises their risk of dangerous side effects and drug interactions.
