According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people aged 65 and older are three times more likely to have a heart attack, stroke, or other serious heart condition in the next six months than the general population.
While a person might feel fine during this time, it’s likely that they’ll have to start taking medication to manage their symptoms.
In addition to having to make a big decision about which medications to take, older adults are also more likely than younger ones to have to deal with health problems like hypertension, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
So, when is the right time to start the process of planning a prescription for geriatric drugs?
Geriatric medicine is considered one of the safest medical treatments.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends taking at least two medications to manage symptoms of heartburn.
It says that, if you’re older than 65, you’re less likely to develop heartburn, and if you have other symptoms, such as pain, you may be able to reduce the severity of the problem by taking medications that help ease the symptoms.
If you’re younger than 65 and you’re taking a different medication, it may be appropriate to take that medication first.
In older adults, the effects of medication can vary depending on their age, and you may need to talk with your doctor about what’s right for you.
If your doctor tells you to take a medication first, it might be best to start with a smaller dose than the recommended dosage for your age.
If that doesn’t work, ask your doctor for a prescription or a plan of treatment that’s tailored to your age group.
When to use geriatric medicines for symptoms of your heartburn If you’ve had symptoms of a heartburn in the past, and your symptoms are getting worse, you might be able, for the first time, to take medication that reduces your symptoms.
