Chris Bolander, DO, a Family Medicine provider with The Everett Clinic discusses simplifying medications. Simplifying your care plan may involve de-prescribing medications that are unnecessary. The more medications you take, the more at risk you are for interactions between medications. It is important that you are on medications that are appropriate for you. An appointment with your healthcare provider can help you narrow down your medication list and stop medications and/or supplements that might not be providing value to your health.
