Researchers have released a list of prescription drugs that may increase the risk for falls among seniors who take at least four medications on a regular basis.
The list, published by researchers at the University of North Carolina,
Includes a variety of common prescription anti-depressants, seizure
medications, painkillers and more.
They all depress the central nervous system, which can make patients less alert and have a delayed reaction time.
Some over the counter allergy, cold and sleep-aid medications are on the list as well.
