Taking 4 or more prescriptions is known as “PolyPharmacy”. As defined by the A.M.A. Journal of ethics – “Polypharmacy has been variously defined as the use of multiple drugs, prescription of more drugs than are medically necessary, or “concomitant ingestion of four or more” medications in the last 3 months.”
And there is a bigger problem at play. Polypharmacy is classified as iatrogenesis—defined literally by its Greek roots as physician generated or as inadvertent harm induced by medical care.
Scientific evidence shows that medical marijuana helps over 70% reduce the dosage amounts and in most cases, eliminate some prescriptions all together.
