235 - Advocating For De-prescribing Medications

235 - Advocating For De-prescribing Medications

We want a fix when we get sick or don't feel well. Prescribing more and more medications because we want an immediate fix can cause more problems than they solve. This situation is especially true for the older population.

One morning I was scrolling through Instagram when a video caught my attention. A pharmacist was talking to an audience of general physicians about how they can continue to make money while de-prescribing meds. I liked it and got an immediate DM. I assumed it was a bot, but there was a real person behind my screen, and he is the guest for this episode.

Dr. DeLeon Canterburry is a board-certified pharmacist who understands how important they can be to our overall well-being. This episode discusses the pitfalls of over-reliance on medication and when and how to stop taking most of them.

I'm confident that the knowledge Dr. DeLeon shares will help you advocate for a medication review and, hopefully, result in your loved one taking fewer meds.
