How do I know if my parent/spouse/loved one is taking medicines that might be interacting with each other and causing problems like confusion, sleepiness, loss of balance, falls?

This is a question for the healthcare provider. It is also a good idea to ask the pharmacist about possible drug interactions every time a new medication is prescribed. Many pharmacists are also offering an annual medication review for patients who are on Medicare. This is a Medicare covered benefit at no charge to the patient, so be sure to ask your pharmacist about it.
