HI-DESERT MEDICAL CENTER OFFERS FREE SEMINAR ON MIXING MEDICATIONS

The Hi-Desert Medical Center is offering free seminar on how to avoid the dangers of mixing medications. Reporter Mike Lipsitz says the seminar is free, but you do have to sign up ahead of time…
A recent study of adults in the U.S. showed that more than 90 percent of people age 65 and above use at least one medication per week. More than 40 percent use five or more medications. Obviously, the more medications you take, the more likely you are to be taking two that don’t mix. Even those just occasionally taking medications for a cold, headache or infection could be at risk for adverse medical reactions. Join Hi-Desert Medical Center Psychiatric Nurse Sylvia Warren and Pharmacist Ram Malhotra as they outline how to stay safe in a multiple-prescription world. Bring your medications in a brown bag and bring your questions to this seminar, Thursday, January 26, at noon in the Helen Gray Education Center on the hospital campus in Joshua Tree. Lunch will be provided. The seminar is FREE but reservations are required by calling 760-366-0808 or by logging on to hdmc.org.
