Taking medications the wrong way is an extremely costly and dangerous problem. It increases the chances of severe medical complications, or even death. A recent study estimated that in one year, incorrect use of medications resulted in more than 9 million hospital admissions and more than 18 million emergency room visits.
U.S. citizens are taking more medications than ever before. In fact, 81% of adults in the U.S. take at least one medication during a given week, and 27% take at least five medications. Busy lives can interfere with regular medication schedules. Long meetings, travel, overscheduled days, and even the weekend soccer game can create obstacles to following a regular medication schedule.
For seniors, remembering to take medications can be especially challenging. Older adults are the nation's largest consumers of prescription and over-the-counter medications. On average, the older adult takes 4-5 prescription medications and two over-the-counter medications a day.
Children also face challenges in remember their medications, Approximately 6% of school-age children, (nearly 13 million), require prescriptions. Many of which need to be administered during the school day.
