You may become sleepy after using some prescription and over-the-counter medicines. There are many sedative drugs, and this can cause balance problems. Dosing regimens are crucial when attempting to prevent the afternoon drowsiness brought on by some drugs. Seniors face this issue, especially since tiredness makes walking more erratic and increases the risk of falling.
Some medications improve memory, particularly in those with Alzheimer's. Still, other medications can interfere with memory and worsen memory problems, so this is something to look for in seniors. Some prescriptions, such as some sleep aids, might make people a little fuzzy, and they may find getting up and getting to their feet more challenging. They might need to discuss dosing reduction with their doctor if this occurs.
A diuretic drug helps lower blood pressure by removing fluid from the body. Seniors frequently take diuretics, which help to enhance urine production. However, if you take a diuretic, you will have to deal with the side effect of frequent urination. Therefore, you should consider being at home or near a bathroom when taking a diuretic.
A dosing schedule is crucial since each prescription has a specified dosage that must be followed, such as once a day, three times daily, etc.
