Parents and prescriptions

Do you currently take at least one prescription medication?

If so, you’re not alone. The Centers for Disease Control reported in 2012 that 48.7% of Americans are currently taking at least one prescription medication.

If you have aging parents, brace yourself. The statistics skyrocket!

In December 2014, Forbes magazine reported that people aged 65-79 receive on average more than 27 prescriptions for new drugs per year. (IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics)

To complicate matters more, older people are consistently excluded from clinical trials, even though they are the largest users of prescription drugs. (Alliance for Aging Research).

Is it any wonder, then, that adverse drug reactions (side effects, drug interactions, inappropriate self-medication) are among the top ten reasons older Americans are admitted to the emergency room?

It sounds frightening, and it is. But help is on the way.


MEDI-RING® allows anyone taking prescription medication to clearly label each bottle with essential information: name, dosing schedule, condition for which the medication is prescribed.

Try this amazing product and revolutionize the medicine cabinets of the people you love (including yourself).
