Abstract

There are many considerations that need to be made when prescribing for the ageing patient. This article will illustrate the common issues when prescribing for the over-65 population. Focus will be on pharmacokinetics and the four processes that occur after oral drug administration, with specific details on the factors that affect these processes in this patient group. There will also be some consideration of multiple morbidity and polypharmacy and a brief section on compliance.
