New Year's resolution: Have a Brown Bag Checkup!

Read my most recent article on LifeZette to learn about "polypharmacy." That's when someone takes five or more prescriptions at the same time. The shocker:  Folks aged 65-84 take an average of 14 to 18 different meds in a year's time. Yikes.

It may be time for you or a loved one to have a "Brown Bag Checkup": "The Problem with the Pills You're Taking" on HealthZette.

When a new year's resolution focuses on making life happier and healthier and can be accomplished in a few hours with the help of others--what's not to resolve?

Happy New Year!
