Nearly 50% of all Americans take two prescription drugs or more on a regular basis. What most of them don’t know is that medications can cause almost any kind of medical problem, from headaches to renal failure and even a stroke. In fact, over 2 million adverse drug reactions occur in the US every year. In many cases, patients spend years suffering from side-effects not knowing their medications are the root cause of their problems. Medication-Related Problems (MRPs) have become the 4th leading cause of death in the United States, causing 100,000 deaths and costing health facilities $528B a year in preventable hospitalization and morbidity.
