A silent epidemic in the U.S. is imperiling our health: over-medication. Today, one-third of all adults take two or more prescription drugs and half of all seniors take more than five daily. This book—the first of its kind—shows readers how to avoid the dangers of over-medication.

The first half of the book describes the harmful effects of taking too many drugs, including drug-drug interactions, medication errors, unintentional overdoses, unnecessary medications, made-up illnesses (“restless leg syndrome”), and side effects that actually mimic a new illness.

The second half discusses the benefits and harm caused by many of the most popular drugs used to treat diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, acid reflux, depression, and pain. It tells which drugs are really needed, and whether or not they cause side effects.

Finally, readers will learn how to discuss their concerns about too many medications with their health care providers, simple ways to make positive lifestyle changes, and when to consider alternative healing approaches.

Combining stories of those who have suffered ill effects from taking too many drugs with data from cutting edge medical findings,Do You Really Need to Take That Pill? helps readers realize they can choose different solutions to their health problems.
