Checking Your Medication

Some medications increase your risk of falling – either on their own or when two or more are combined. As you age, the way some medications affect you can change and increase your risk of falling.

  • Have your doctor or pharmacist review all medications that you are taking every year.

  • Remember that medications include prescriptions, over-the-counter pills, vitamins and herbal supplements.
